LONDON – Finance minister Rishi Sunak on Thursday asked Britain’s independent budget office to produce new forecasts for March 23, suggesting he is likely to deliver his mid-year Spring Statement update on that day.

“(Sunak) has commissioned the Office for Budget Responsibility to produce an economic and fiscal forecast for Wednesday March 23,” the finance ministry said in a statement.
