Budget may be delayed, says Transport Secretary Grant Shapps
The government's budget may be delayed, a cabinet minister has said. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the date would be a matter for Mr Javid's replacement, Rishi Sunak. He told the BBC's Andrew Marr programme: "The guy's only been in place for a few days, let's give him a few days to decide on the date." Mr Shapps said the government had not confirmed the budget would "Definitely go ahead on the same date as mentioned before", but added: "Clearly, we'll need to have a budget." Earlier, he told Sky's Sophy Ridge programme that plans were "Well advanced", but Mr Sunak "May want time" and would be looking at the plans this week.
