Letter - our spending plans from the Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, the Chancellor of the Exchequer

Better hospitals. Improved schools. Safer streets. And a stronger economy. That’s what yesterday's Spending Round delivers.

I set out the Government’s spending plans yesterday.

We’re getting on with the job of delivering Brexit by 31st October, but we’re not waiting around to invest in the priorities we all share.

For the first time since 2002, spending in every single government department is up, at least in line with inflation.

We’re making sure you start seeing the extra £33.9 billion for the NHS – the biggest cash boost ever. So you get the healthcare you need.

We’re investing an extra £2.6 billion next year in our schools. So every single child, wherever they are, gets a better education.

We’re expanding Further Education with an extra £400 million. So young people get the skills they need for the modern economy.

And we’re hiring an extra 20,000 police officers. So the police have the help they need to make your streets safer.

We’re able to do this because, with your support, we took the tough decisions. Thanks to the hard work of the British people, we’re turning the page on austerity and beginning a new decade of renewal.

So if you like our plans for more investment and a stronger economy – then why not share them?

Our new economic plan gives all government departments the certainty they need to focus on delivering Brexit on 31st October – as we build a brighter future for Britain.

Yours sincerely,

Sajid Javid signature
