Chancellor Jeremy Hunt has delivered his autumn statement which included a shock 2 per cent cut to national insurance and a boost to pensions that he pledged would get Britain’s economy “back on track”.

Mr Hunt kept the pensions triple lock in place meaning an 8.5 per cent rise for pensioners, vowed to increase in-work benefits by 6.7 per cent, and froze the tax on alcohol. He will also permanently allow firms to offset any investments, in a tax break costing £11bn a year.

He claimed his plan for the British economy was “working”, but Labour accused the Tories of “making working people worse off” and the Office of Budget Responsibility downgraded its economic growth forecast and warned inflation would stay higher for longer.
