Hammond To Make Spring Statement

Hammond will unveil the latest economic forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility in a brief 15-minute statement to MPs at 12:30 GMT.

He is set to unveil consultations on a single-use plastics tax and a possible tax on the profits of digital giants like Facebook and Google.

He is expected to reveal that tax receipts are covering day-to-day government spending for the first time since the 2008 financial crisis.

There will be no policy announcements or tax and spending measures - they will be held back to the Budget in the autumn - and no photocall outside 11 Downing Street with the chancellor's red box.

I am forced to ask, what is the fucking point of this then?
