HC Deb 16 March 1993 vol 221 c196

In the first Budget of this Parliament, I have set out the Government's economic strategy. I have cut the tax burden on business; and given help for small businesses, exports and the unemployed. I have demonstrated clearly how we will bring Government borrowing down in the years ahead. That is the only way to sustain growth and build a strong and sound economy in the 1990s.

This is a Budget for sustained recovery and a Budget for jobs—not just for this year and next year, but right through this decade. I commend it to the House.
