Finance minister Sunak under Downing Street pressure to ease fiscal rules in budget - Financial Times
Government officials said one option would be to set the "balanced budget" target on a rolling five-year basis, pushing back the target to 2025, the newspaper said. A target range of "plus or minus 1 percent" could also be introduced, allowing the finance minister more flexibility, the report added.
No alternatives for a new framework to allow more public borrowing had yet been discussed with Sunak, the newspaper said citing Downing Street officials.
