Chancellor George Osborne is to announce a plan to help people who at the moment can't afford to buy bread.
About 60 million people will benefit from the Help to Buy Scheme, details of which have yet to be announced.
Bakers and leading supermarkets have welcomed the initiative although some predict it could lead to a 'bread bubble' with rising bread prices leaving some customers in negative bread equity.
Labour has condemned Help to Buy as 'stale and half-baked'.
Osborne said the scheme could be extended to cheese.
