Rishi Sunak says the economy is forecast to return to pre-Covid levels by year-end, growing by 6.5% in 2021, during his Budget announcement.
The chancellor warned of “tough months ahead” as inflation is to spike to 4% next year with the economy struggling to keep up with the demands of Covid and Brexit.
