Lord Bilimoria spoke to the BBC and Reuters on Wednesday 19th March 2014 as part of the media coverage of the 2014 United Kingdom Budget. The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, made a number of decisions on pensions, manufacturing exports and duty that Lord Bilimoria, the Founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer, felt would make a positive contribution to the future of the British economy.

In the run-up to the Chancellor’s statement at 12:30, Lord Bilimoria was interviewed by the BBC on College Green alongside Frances O’Grady, the General Secretary of the Trade Union Congress.

Following the Budget, Lord Bilimoria was interviewed by Reuters Business New, alongside Emma Jones and the IT entrepreneur, Stan Boland about the Chancellor’s announcements of a cut in Corporation Tax, a 1p fall in Beer Duty and the news that direct lending from government to UK businesses to promote exports is to be doubled to £3 billion.
