The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right to say that the construction of a Budget involves a balance of choices; it balances what we do in public expenditure and what we do on taxation. I am very proud that the Liberal Democrat influence on this Budget has led to 800,000 people being taken out of income tax, and child tax credit being raised by £150 a year. Many more measures have also been included in the Budget as a result of the coalition relationship that has been developed.
