No shocks in May budget -- PM

There isn't going to be anything in next month's budget that will surprise people, Prime Minister John Key says.

Cabinet met on Monday to sign it off, and Finance Minister Bill English will present it on May 26.

"There's nothing in it that you would say is shock and awe," Mr Key told reporters on Tuesday.

"There's nothing that will surprise people in the budget, the work the government has been doing is quite consistent."

Mr Key says there might be something in it about the release of land for housing, as there was in last year's budget.

The Prime Minister confirmed on The Nation programme last Saturday that the Government would be providing funding for infrastructure improvements for freedom campers.
