Budget 2014: Shapps on job creation and UK recovery

An economic recovery was helping "all regions of the UK" and the Conservative-led government was helping to create more jobs than ever, with 30 million people in work, said Grant Shapps.

The Conservative Party chairman said Wednesday's Budget would be about sticking with the government's long-term economic plan, with tax cuts and a rise in the minimum wage.

It was the second of three Budget big boards on the Daily Politics, following Tim Farron last Thursday, and to be followed by Caroline Flint for Labour on Tuesday.
