Pre-Budget analysis: Will we see increased funding on social care and cuts to business rates?
The Spring budget is just a day away now, Philip Hammond's first as Chancellor. The last one before the Brexit. And by all accounts whatever small surprises he manages to spring there will be some tax rises to meet a fresh round of spending commitments. How else will he meet extra spending on social care, for example, or that promised business rate relief? With the Spring Budget imminent, predictions on what the Chancellor will have to offer or what he will not offer are well underway. So what can we expect? Nigel Cassidy was joined by Bill Dodwell, Head of Tax Policy at Deloitte to give his pre-budget analysis.

Jeremy Corbyn has published his tax returns, yet the Chancellor has not. Should it be an obligation?
The Chancellor Philip Hammond has been speaking ahead of Wednesday's Budget. And he's warned there will be no "spending sprees" in the Budget. Mr Hammond also said that any surplus cash would be used to ensure the UK had enough "gas in the tank" for the coming years. In Labour news, they've had to defend party leader Jeremy Corbyn over the amount of tax he's paid. Labour say they're "confident" Corbyn did pay the correct amount. Yet more damaging stories for the party and for Mr Corbyn? To discuss this, Sarah Pennells was joined by political journalist Natasha Clarke.
