Government Debt

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

19. To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has received on his Department's programme for reducing the level of Government debt; and if he will make a statement. (322203)

Treasury Ministers and officials receive representations from a wide variety of organisations. It is not the Government’s practice to provide details of such representations.

The 2009 pre-Budget report set out the Government’s plans to ensure the sustainability of the public finances, and the Fiscal Responsibility Act has enshrined these plans in legislation.

The Chancellor will provide an update in his Budget statement on 24 March.
