Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announces the biggest tax cut since the 1980s as he delivers his autumn statement.

The Chancellor announced he was slashing the rate of National Insurance by 2% for employees and the self-employed, benefiting 27 million workers.

He confirms British firms are set to benefit from “the largest business tax cut in modern British history.”
