THE 2018 Budget has see plans announced to open up e-passport gates for visitors from the US, Canada and a host of other countries as the UK makes plans for Brexit Britain.

Chancellor Philip Hammond announced the plans to make it easier for travellers from the US, Japan and a number of Commonwealth nations, in a Budget to help "send a message loud and clear to the rest of the world that Britain is open for business" ahead of leaving the European Union in March next year.

“The Right Honourable Member for Hayes and Harlington (John McDonnell) lists fermenting the overthrow of capitalism as one of his pastimes.

“Mine is reinvigorating capitalism because I want Britain to be one of the great winners of the technological revolution.

“On this side of the house we will always back enterprise and the market economy that underpins it because we know it is the only way to deliver the high wage high skills economy of the future.

“As we finalise our departure from the EU and deliver a deal that secures Britain’s future trade we must unleash the investment that will drive our future prosperity.”

Mr Hammond revealed a number of schemes to “stimulate British investment and send a message loud and clear to the rest of the world that Britain is open for business".
