Where should the spending cuts axe fall?
Chancellor George Osborne has spelled out plans to cut £6.2 bn in spending to start rectifying the UK's finances. Are the cuts too much too soon?
The cuts are the first step in the coalition government's attempt to eliminate the UK's record deficit - likely to total £156bn this year - over the next five years. Budgets for IT, property, advertising and recruitment are expected to be cut and some quangos could be abolished.
But, Labour MP and former chief Treasury secretary, Liam Byrne, said he feared the government was taking a risk on the economy recovery by making the cuts too early.
Ministers admit the cuts will be "painful" and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has said its decisions will be "unpopular and controversial".
Where do you think savings should be made? Should the cuts be delayed to give the economy more time to recover? Do you work in the public sector?
