Unite's reaction to today's budget

24th March 2010

Unite joint general secretary, Derek Simpson, said: "The starting whistle for the election has been blown and it's 1-0 to Labour. The last budget before the election shows leadership and responsibility during difficult times. Alistair Darling has focused on support for the young, growth, investment and jobs when Tory doom-mongers who spend their time talking Britain down would rather slash and burn our public services and leave working families to sink or swim.

"The establishment of a green investment bank is welcome, it will support British manufacturing when the Tories don't even have an industrial policy."
