Money Box Live: The Autumn Budget 2017

Financial phone-in. The Chancellor delivers his second budget of the year. Paul Lewis and a panel of expert guests assess its impact on your personal finances.

What are the government's plans for tax and spending and how will they affect your personal finances? As the Chancellor delivers his second budget of the year, we're expecting measures to boost house-building and help young voters get on the property ladder. There may be a stamp duty holiday for first-time buyers or for pension-age homeowners wanting to downsize. Changes to pensions may be on the cards. What help might there be for savers and investors - and how will it be funded? Paul Lewis and a panel of experts assess the impact on the pound in your pocket. We'll meet the Marsden family from Oxfordshire, three generations living under the same roof - with an age range of 21 to 90 years old. How will the budget impact their lives?

Paul Lewis will be joined by:

Anita Monteith, Technical Manager at the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales
Tom Selby, Senior Analyst at AJ Bell
Iona Bain, Founder, Young Money blog

Presenter: Paul Lewis
Producer: Sally Abrahams.
