Chancellor to deliver major economic statement
The Chancellor Rishi Sunak is set to make a major economic statement today - with big news on stamp duty, tax changes and more likely.
The Government has already trailed the announcement of a new scheme offering vouchers of up to £5,000 (or £10,000 for those on the lowest incomes) to be used by homeowners on energy efficient home improvements. We're expecting the Chancellor to announce details on that later today.
The Chancellor is set to deliver his statement at around 12.30pm. You can follow Martin's Twitter for his 'translations' of the statement and MSE's Twitter for the breaking news - plus we'll have detailed coverage on MSE News.
