Budget on Wednesday 22nd November 2017
The Autumn Budget 2017 statement made in the House of Commons by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, on Wednesday 22nd November 2017 provided an
update on the Government’s plans for the economy based on the latest forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility. These forecasts are published alongside the Budget Statement. Full details of those announcements are available on the HM Treasury website & Budget statement.

The Chancellor announced in the Autumn Statement 2016 that the Government will move to a single fiscal event each year so the Spring Budget 2017 was the last Budget held during springtime. The OBR will continue to make two forecasts a year. The Finance Bill will follow the Autumn Budget 2017.

Following the Chancellor's statement to Parliament we have our usual a prompt report on the few measures announced which will be of interest to the classic motoring enthusiast.
