What they said
'This is the Budget of a government that gets things done.'
'The reality is that this is a Budget that is an admission of failure – an admission that austerity has been a failed experiment.'
'In deeply challenging times, the Chancellor has worked against the clock to deliver two Budgets in one: a first for national resilience today and a second for economic ambition tomorrow.'
'This is a pro-small business Budget, which has delivered a high streets bonus, a series of Conservative manifesto promises to small businesses, and emergency steps to support small firms through the coronavirus outbreak.'
'The Budget has addressed the immediate challenges facing the economy, but the Chancellor will have to do more to support businesses as they navigate changes to trading arrangements and the end of the Brexit transition period.'
