In Derby, we are absolutely privileged to have so many small breweries. It makes sure we keep the British brewing traditions alive, and allow small businesses to prosper right here in Derby. This is why in this budget we have frozen alcohol duties. This will ensure that these businesses will make more profit which they can use to support their families and continue to invest in their businesses. With the rise in micropubs alongside our breweries, this also means we can create flexible & stable employment for those in the pub sector.

The Governments’ support for local businesses isn’t exclusive to the pub trade. Through our Towns Fund, we will provide vital funding to help transform High Streets across the country. We want to ensure the traditional centre of businesses across our towns and cities doesn’t get lost in the 21st Century and we can still build a sense of community among our local businesses. Investment in the highstreet will ensure footfall can grow and support local & often specialist businesses. Here in the Derbyshire area, this is no different and this Government is delighted to work together with you to help our local businesses.

I am inspecting the government's budget, there are some stuff that is good such as funding for Midlands Engine - National Link Rail but I am utterly disappointed at other issues. For example extra funding for replacing unsafe claddings. Where are these fundings for replacing unsafe claddings across the UK is a matter of urgency and extreme importance. After Grenfell, I hoped that at least Labour would get it done but I am sorely disappointed. Brexit Party is offering 1.5 billion to replace unsafe claddings across the UK, we believe what happened at Grenfell was unacceptable and can never again and that is why we are offering actual funding for replacing unsafe claddings across the country. 

Brexit Party is offering additional 7.2 billion for our social care and the Government is offering 2 billions. Caroline Blakesley has stated that: " A £1 billion social care fund, Mr Speaker? There is a projected £4.4 billion social care funding gap in England alone. Using the Prime Minsiter's own maths, three out of four seniors that need care will be failed by our social care system. ". By using the maths Caroline Blakesley has used that means one out of every two seniors that need care will be failed by our social care system. Only Brexit Party has provided a real solution to our social care crisis and we will make sure to get it done in any government we will be in.

Sure Start is one of the Labour achievements that I have always been fond and proud of. Sure Start was decimated by the Tories and the fact that Labour is not properly funding is so wrong. While the government is only restoring around 15 percent of the cuts, Brexit Party is not only restoring all of the cuts we are also investing additional 217 million in it. The additional investment alone is more than all of what this government is offering to Sure Start, when Emily Greenwood got into government I assumed she would have at least stood up for our education system but just like her stance on the Loser's Vote, her stance on proper education funding is wobbly and weak.

The government's decision to keep per pupil funding at the same rate Tories did shows us how serious this government was on their education pledges, none at all. The government's decision to keep the funding level at the same level Tories did is simply unacceptable.The average cut per pupil is £245 for a primary school child and £304 for those in secondary education and Brexit Party is offering additional £300 pounds per pupil, we are committed to not only full restore education cuts, we also will invest more. We are also hiring 20 thousand more education staff while the government is hiring almost half of it. I know there are tough choices to make in every budget but I prefer to increase funding to current schools to improve them instead of building new schools with no new funding and setting them up for same mediocrity. Brexit Party will ensure that overcrowding issues are resolved, our schools can properly function and ensure that no teacher has to spend their own money to keep their class functioning.

The government is offering no new funding for our benefits is showing how serious they were about their complaints against effects of austerity and benefits cuts. Brexit Party is offering 2 pound a week increase on every single benefit, scraps the bedroom tax, benefits sanctions and two child cap and we are funding all of these without even raising any taxes for it or increasing the deficit, we are cutting our foreign aid by half to ensure that we aid the most vulnerable in our society first. Brexit Party is with our seniors, young families, and poorest in our society and the government has just shown where they are, a hint, not yours.

If the Brexit Party thinks that Labour's work in fixing nearly ten years of Tory austerity is so bad, you have to wonder why they hitch their wagon to the Tories anyway. I'll let the Brexit Party explain why to them, crashing out of the EU is worth more than new schools, new hospitals, a beefed up NHS, more funding for mental health, homelessness, transport infrastructure...

Labour's budget fulfills a number of promises made: that austerity is over and that we're going to invest in the services people rely on. Only our budget- with our partners in the Liberal Democrats- makes investments in the regions that need. Only our budget puts funding in projects that are going to tighten our connections and expand our markets. Only our budget provides a meaningful pay raise for our soldiers, nurses, teachers, police forces, and more. And now we're at a point where so much of this can be undone by the Tory desire to return to "austerity business as normal," which is apparently going to be aided by the Brexiteers. Britain deserves better- and we'll stand by our budget to show that we can and will do better.

The Austerity is over but we will keep the Austerity Era funding rates for our children and for the most vulnerable in our society, what a bunch of nonsense!

Labour budget is not investing one bit in per pupil funding, not a single penny. Labour budget is only restoring 15 percent of Sure Start cuts, Labour budget is not investing any money to replace unsafe cladding in United Kingdom and Labour budget does nothing to reverse benefits cuts that have ravaged communities across the country. It's as if what has Labour said about austerity, the school funding cuts and the benefits cuts was just a lie and did not matter at all. Labour needs to answer why they have not increased funding for our children and for the most vulnerable in our society while talking so much about how use of foodbanks is increasing, about families are struggling and simply can't get ahead. Brexit Party is offering a 214 pound tax cut on every household on domestic fuel, we are offering 300 pound extra on per pupil funding, we are expanding childcare to 0-5 year olds and adding 20 additional hours of free childcare, we are investing 5.8 billion in housing and we are reducing the deficit by 5 percent while Labour is increasing it by 20 percent. Labour's budget is taxing you more, offering you less and still increases the deficit.

To say "Labour's budget offers nothing more" is apparently ignoring the NHS and investment in new infrastructure and green technology- areas that are important to this country but that I notice the Brexit Party hasn't scrutinized yet. When the Leave campaign promised £350 million a week for the NHS, they were using it as a trick- and in just one year we've almost delivered that.[b] We're reducing wait times with more staff, with more equipment, and with more hospitals and clinics than anyone has proposed- and really more than any other time in history.

I'm glad the Brexit Party thinks they've got all the right answers, but they don't- particularly when they ally themselves with the champions of austerity and tax cuts for the wealthy. We're on our way to rebuilding a Britain that has suffered for years under Tory neglect. We're on our way to asking those who have benefitted more to pay more. And we're bumping up the NHS staffing and ability to provide care towards where it's always needed to be- and where the Brexit Party and the Tories would never let it go if they were in charge. We're saying "thank you" to those that literally save lives with a meaningful and real pay increase.

((OOC: Drat. The bolded line should be actually bold: [b]When the Leave campaign promised £350 million a week for the NHS, they were using it as a trick- and in just one year we've almost delivered that.

With social care facing a £1 billion shortfall this year that will rise to £4.4 billion over the next four years, the Government is taking action to fill critical gaps now and prepare for the introduction of a National Care Service. This funding will provide a critical surge for local authorities facing a care crisis and help put social care back on track towards achieving solvency. This is funding that will ensure that the most vulnerable in Britain are not left behind and can receive the care that they need. That is what this government achieved.

However, I will be the first to admit that Britain must do more on social care: which is why this funding is not an end, but a bridge to building a National Care Service. Labour will continue to champion building a care service that is universal, high quality, and free at point of use. These are plans that we can only achieve, however, with a Labour majority government - plans that we could not pursue during this Parliament. Unlike other parties that are content to just keep throwing money at a social care system that doesn't work, Labour is committed to laying the groundwork for real change in social care.

Our budget is a budget that serves those who have served us - our valued veterans.

We have already outlined part of the massive investment in programs to support veterans in the United Kingdom: from finding a job, to getting better health care, to putting a roof over their head. This Government firmly believes that a veteran should not find themselves at the end of a career of keeping this country safe, and then have to worry if they will be able to feed or house themselves or their families.

We want this country to see firsthand that the contributions veterans can make after their service are transformative. The skills and capabilities gained while on active duty have so many parallels in ‘civilian life’, and we want to give veterans the chance to continue to further Britain’s interests in their second career. To this end we are creating an NIC tax holiday for employers, creating a real incentive for them to hire veterans, extending funding in job marching programs, as well as funding a number of programs that will support veteran entrepreneurs to be their own boss.

Ultimately we are giving the veterans of this country a guarantee. Our Armed Services Guarantee. A guarantee to a livelihood, to a home, and to opportunities once they leave the services. We have built upon the Armed Forces Covenant, and reinforced it with solid funded commitments, and it is a Guarantee that we are taking through the next election.

The Liberal Democrats - with our partners in government - have prepared a budget that shows, beyond any doubt, what good liberal voices and liberal values can do when at the heart of government. This is a budget that tackles the burning injustices, begins making the necessary investments in our economy to level up all regions and truly enable innovation and creativity, and starts restoring the promise of our public services. Though a single budget cannot solve all the problems that we face, it can do a lot, and I was pleased to see so many Liberal Democrat priorities delivered upon - such as providing more resources for mental health, fighting rough sleeping and providing more support to disabled people to live independently, and investing in creating a green, low-carbon, high-innovation economy. Many of our manifesto commitments have been delivered upon.

No single budget can correct ten years of Tory austerity, but one budget can correct most of the damage. After ten years of Conservative rule that has decimated our police force nationally this Labour led Government has made a massive step forward in correcting that by hiring 10,000 police officers. These 10,000 officers re-introduce almost half the numbers the Tories cut meaning we are putting more police officers back onto our streets and tackling crime that the Tories allowed to spiral out of control. In one budget we have taken a massive step forward to meeting our manifesto commitment to rebuild our police force. Alongside this commitment we have also funded a new Police Training Fund of £25 million that will specifically provide for training of new police officers, whether it is their first career or a change of career, under Labour we will return the Police Force to a career and vocation that we are proud of. Labour have only just gotten started and we're already delivering for Britain.

In the budget we have also shown our commitment to giving our public sector works a proper pay rise after ten years of Tories demonising and castigating the workers who deliver the services we all rely and depend on. Across the board we have given an above inflation pay rise to make up for the ten years of Conservative neglect. Labour are delivering on our promises to give the people of this country a pay rise, and that is what we are doing in our budget. Only Labour will deliver for workers.
