UK finance minister orders new post-budget economic forecasts

LONDON, Feb 27 (Reuters) - British finance minster Rishi Sunak ordered an additional set of economic forecasts to be produced by the country’s independent budget forecaster, asking that they be published on March 13 - two days after he delivers his first budget.

“Given the unique circumstances this year, I would like to commission the OBR (Office for Budget Responsibility) to publish a second forecast on the 13 March, to provide a limited update to the 11 March forecast,” Sunak said in a letter to OBR Chairman Robert Chote.
