Contributing sentiments towards policy:

56% : Hunt said the government would maintain the plan to increase public spending by 1% in real terms, as set out in the autumn statement, rather than cutting it by 0.75%, as expected.
52% : Hunt confirmed The Times's report of a 2p cut to the rate of National Insurance (NI).
50% : It must be weighed against the context of the highest tax burden since the Second World War and the Conservatives' decision to freeze tax thresholds in 2021, rather than raising them in line with prices, which drags more people into the higher-rate tax bracket.
