City Views | What did you make of the budget?

The Budget may have a decent impact on the housing sector and property. Small businesses may be affected as well, but other than that, nothing else seemed that significant.

I don’t think reducing the cost of beer by 1p is going to make much of a difference. Anything they talked about was too small to have a significant impact. I think what they really need to do is tax bets people make.

AMBER INSURANCE

The reduction in national insurance for small businesses might do something, but that’s the only point that jumped out at me. They’re not going to achieve what they are trying to, which is growth.
