Budget Day betting: 4/1 to scrap fuel duty

William Hill make Alistair Darling an 8/1 chance to be responsible for the first Budget following the next General Election, but make George Osborne odds-on favourite at 4/11 to be the politican making the next Budget speech.

Hills also offer 10/1 that Vince Cable will be the Chancellor when the next Budget is delivered.

"If we do get the Hung Parliament many pundits are predicting then there is every chance that Vince Cable could be the next Chancellor," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills are offering 4/1 that Mr Darling will opt to scrap or delay the schduled Fuel Duty, due to be implemented on April 1 - and they make the Budget Speech 7/2 to be under 41 minutes in length.

How long will Darling's budget speech be?

7/2 Under 41mins; 4/1 41-45m; 4/1 46-50m; 5/1 51-55m; 6/1 56-60m; 7/1 61-65m; 9/1 66-70m; 10/1 71-75m; 12/1 0ver 75m.
