BCC praises 'business focused' Budget

The Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has praised the Budget for being "really focused on business."

John Longworth welcomed Chancellor George Osborne's "important" commitment to apprentices, house building and relief for industrial energy use.

However he added there was a "huge hill to climb" to make sure the growth was sustainable.

Mr Longworth told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money: "He's used that small amount of money quite wisely."
