The CBI is calling on the government to give a £500m boost to business in the Budget through a series of "targeted and modest" tax cuts.

In its submission ahead of the 21 March Budget, the business lobby group has urged the chancellor to deliver "Plan A plus" to bolster growth and investment.

It proposes a new tax cut for firms that invest in infrastructure projects.

The Director General of the CBI, John Cridland spoke to the BBC's Chief Political Correspondent Norman Smith.
