Helen and Stephen are joined by Sir Howard Davies, chairman of RBS and former deputy governor of the Bank of England, to dissect this year’s budget. What has Philip Hammond kept up his sleeve for Brexit? Is austerity really ‘coming to an end’? And what’s the deal with the tax cut for higher earners? All these questions, and many others, answered.
