To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps will be taken to ensure that official support for the Budget statement will be in accordance with the Guidance on Conduct for Civil Servants in UK Departments. [103666]

Holding the Budget announcement on 9 April is fully consistent with the Guidance on Conduct for Civil Servants in UK Departments.
