Good news from the today: employment in the UK is at a record high and wages are growing at their fastest pace in almost ten years. But it's important that people's hard-earned money goes further, that's why at the Budget we cut taxes and froze fuel duty again.

Our economy grew 0.6% between July and September – proof of its underlying strength. That’s 8 straight years of economic growth, 3.3 million more people in jobs and wages growing at their fastest pace in almost a decade.
