Podcast: The 2017 Budget Special

The New Statesman podcast with Helen Lewis, Stephen Bush, and special guest Howard Davies.

By New Statesman

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. Was Philip Hammond avoiding mentioning Brexit? Will the stamp duty change really help first time buyers? How worried should you be about the downgraded growth forecasts? All these questions, and many others, answered.
