Fiscal Policy

Volume 492: debated on Tuesday 12 May 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Government plan to bring forward proposals for a second package of fiscal stimulus measures for the UK economy. (274089)

The Government have taken decisive action in response to the global economic crisis. The Budget in April announced targeted fiscal support for those most affected by the downturn and to ensure a sustained and sustainable recovery. These measures build on the fiscal stimulus announced in the PBR, along with the support provided by allowing the UK’s relatively powerful automatic fiscal stabilisers to operate in full.
