Pleasantly surprising or deeply disappointing? Cause for optimism or despair? Welcome extra cash or hush money? Listen to Jennifer and Jonathan lay out their very different views on the Chancellor’s Budget announcements this week – from potholes to social care, high street regeneration to business rate reliefs.

We also bring you highlights from our member-only Daily News emails, including councils using satellites to fight pollution and structural faults in tower blocks, and some of our member-only briefings, covering the IoG/CIPFA Performance Tracker and childhood obesity.

Hosted by Jen Glover and Jonathan Carr-West.
