Boost for Plymouth in the Budget?

The Chancellor is set to deliver a significant boost to Plymouth's economy tomorrow (March 18th) in his last budget before the General Election.

George Osborne is expected to offer businesses tax breaks and generous incentives if they move to an new Enterprize Zone on dockyard land at Devonport.

It's hoped the project will bring a multi-million boost to the local economy and thousands of jobs.

Bob Constantine reports.

Obviously the brewing industry is delighted to see a reduction of 1p per pint in beer duty. This is good news for the counties publicans and brewers. The freezing of duty on Cider and whiskey will also help the regions cider farms and pubs."
