Sir Lindsay Hoyle today stepped up his war of words with the Government as he blasted Rishi Sunak for making pre-Budget policy announcements. 

The Chancellor will deliver his Budget tomorrow but the Treasury has set out numerous policies ahead of the financial statement. 

That approach has prompted repeated rebukes from Sir Lindsay who is adamant all policy announcements should be made to MPs first. 

Sir Lindsay criticised ministers over the approach yesterday and did the same again this afternoon after more details were pre-briefed. 

The Commons Speaker accused Mr Sunak and the Treasury of treating Parliament in a 'discourteous manner' as he vowed to do everything in his power to ensure ministers answer MPs' questions. 

Meanwhile, MPs on both sides of the chamber expressed their anger at the Government's communications strategy, accusing ministers of 'treating parliamentary democracy with utter contempt'.
