BUDGET 2011: Britain to become 'world leader' in green energy

Chancellor George Osborne has said he wants Britain to become a world leader in advanced manufacturing and green energy.

He said: “Difficult decisions and major reforms are needed to make it happen but the alternative is to accept Britain’s economic decline.”

Mr Osborne said he wanted every region in the UK to experience growth.

Private sector growth must replace government spending, he said.
