UK to Push Cash Into Financial Health, Brexit Permitting

Britain’s Treasury chief will splash out on health services in a spending plan to be announced, signalling the easing of eight years of austerity — Brexit permitting.

Philip Hammond is set to pledge 2 billion pounds (USD 2.5 billion) more for mental health services as he delivers his final budget before the country leaves the European Union, his office said.

In advance of the presentation, he told the BBC he also intends to increase National Health Service funding by 20 billion pounds a year by 2023.
