HM Treasury: our priorities

Reduce the structural deficit in a fair and responsible way
Take action to tackle the deficit in a fair and responsible way, ensure that taxpayers’ money is spent responsibly, and get the public finances back on track whilst protecting growth

Secure an economy that is more resilient, and more balanced between public and private sectors and between regions
Take action to boost enterprise, support green growth and build a fairer and more balanced economy to achieve a sustainable distribution of growth across the economy

Reform the regulatory framework for the financial sector to avoid future financial crises
Replace the current system of financial regulation with a framework that promotes responsible and sustainable banking, where regulators have greater powers to curb unsustainable lending practices and we take action to promote more competition in the banking sector
