It's the Budget today and it is clear from the media coverage already that it will be a Budget designed to provide economic growth (see here, here, here and here).

But will the environment grow and prosper under the Chancellor's economic strategy? Has he given it a thought?  Will he give it a mention?  Will the Budget speech be at pains to tell us how sustainable is this package of measures?

Will the 'greenest government ever' really make environmentally sustainable choices?

What future for the Green Investment Bank? Air passenger duty? Fuel duty? Carbon capture and storage? The planning system?
