This will be the first purely Conservative Budget in nearly 20 years and the first of the new government.
Even though we already had a Budget earlier this year, this Summer Budget is a sort of ‘emergency budget’, similar to the one George Osborne called following their victory in 2010.
The emergency budget will be held 8th July at 12:30 BST.
This is what the UK Investor Magazine is expecting from the Budget
