Budget: Cost of Changes — Question
Lord Eatwell (Labour)
My Lords, I am intrigued by the noble Lord's estimate. Let us say that there is a £150 million cost to these changes. Can he tell the House whether that is the limit of what can be afforded? Could £151 million be afforded, or perhaps two or three times that £150 million, or maybe 10 times that £150 million? What is the limit that can be afforded?
