George Osborne’s announcements today show that the government has no plan for jobs or growth.  We now know that:

  • Over 490,000 public sector jobs are likely to be lost;
  • £7bn will be cut from the welfare budget, hitting the poorest hardest;
  • Councils in England face massive cuts of 28%;
  • Police funding will be cut by 4% a year for the next four years. Chief Constables are saying today that these cuts will affect front-line policing and there is "no question" there will be fewer police officers on the street;
  • The retirement age will rise from 65 to 66 by 2020, four years earlier than previously planned;
  • The NHS budget will increase by 0.4% over the whole spending period.  This is the worst settlement for the NHS since the early 1980s and will be entirely swallowed by rising costs.  The NHS confederation has also warned today that the cuts in local council budgets will have a knock on-effect on the health service.
