Making a Spring Statement
Wednesday, 23 March
Spring is in the air… along with inflation and a rise in the cost of living.
The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, unveiled his Spring Statement today against a backdrop of rising inflation at home, and economic uncertainty abroad amid the Ukraine crisis.
To help pore over the pennies, percentages and decimal points in the Chancellor’s plans, Adam is joined by Laura, the BBC’s Evan Davis and Gareth McNab from debt counselling charity Christians Against Poverty.
Also… Phil McCann is at a petrol station in Chester to discuss the fuel duty cut.
Today’s Newscast was made by Tim Walklate, with John Murphy and Ben Cooper. The studio director was Mike Regaard. The assistant editor was Alison Gee.
