Bassetlaw MP John Mann has questioned Chancellor George Osborne on his budget and its impact on the country.

The Treasury Select Committee member challenged Mr Osborne on the increase in immigration, the cutting of Network Rail’s budgetand the sacking of the FCA’s Chief Executive.

Mr Mann said “I repeatedly asked the Chancellor where the extra one million new migrants that his budget predictions are based on are going to live and he simply couldn’t provide an answer.

“The Chancellor failed to answer the big questions. He had no answer to how the rise in the Insurance Premium Tax will be paid for by consumers, why Network Rail has cancelled its shovel-ready projects and where his predicted extra one million immigrants will live.”
