Chancellor Philip Hammond’s last spring Budget delivered its usual mix of highs and lows for the UK.
From giving on the one hand – extra money for social care, science and education – to taking away with the other – National Insurance rises and roaming charges – the Budget will split opinion.

Some 2 million households will be eligible for tax free childcare by the end of the year, the chancellor confirmed. Working parents with three-and-four-year-olds will see their free childcare entitlement doubled to 30 hours a week from September, Mr Hammond said. The new tax-free childcare will see eligible families get 20 per cent of annual childcare costs paid for by the government. (Getty)
