“The OBR forecast today that the UK will not enter a technical recession this year because of changing international factors and the measures I have taken,” he told the House of Commons on Wednesday.

He added that Britain’s independent budget watchdog “predicted that we would meet the Prime Minister’s priorities of halving inflation, reducing debt and boosting economic growth. We are delivering on the plan and it is working. But it is not All we do.”
