To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what progress he has made on his long-term economic plan.

The government’s long-term economic plan is working, and the UK is expected by the IMF to grow faster than any other G7 country this year. Inflation is below target, the deficit is forecast to have halved as a share of GDP in 2014-15, and there are record numbers of people in work. But the job is not yet done and the biggest risk now to the recovery would be abandoning the plan that is delivering a brighter economic future.
