Asked if the priority was hastening spend, ensuring no one is under spending or giving a bit back, the PMS said that the PM was clear that his priority was to get the economy on track, deal with the deficit and debt, and focus on growth. The PMS said that the Government had set conditions for this low interest rates, low corporate tax. On the other hand the PM recognised that families were finding it difficult, and he tried to ease the burden while meeting the key concerns and interests that people have eg collection of waste, and council tax. These would be funded through under spend across Whitehall departments.

Asked if the priority was giving back, the PMS said that they didn’t want to upset the plans in place, but that they could use some of the under spend on priorities for families. However she said that we would still be meeting our spending commitments that will deliver the savings we require to help deal with the deficit and the record debt.
