ITV News Political Editor Robert Peston tweeted:
Wow. OBR forecasts £220bn increase in national debt by end of parliament to staggering £1.945 trillion. Huge Brexit impact
So to be clear, Brexit impact on public finances is a deterioriation of £220bn by end of parliament. Worse than feared #AutumnStatement
The Chancellor announced one significant tax rise in his Autumn Statement which some may see as a little bit sneaky.
