UK Budget preview and Salmond vs Sturgeon

Rishi Sunak will deliver his second Budget next week, where the chancellor will set out a mission to put the UK’s public finances on a sounder footing. Will he reveal rises in spending, tax or both? Plus, we discuss Alex Salmond’s select committee appearance on Friday and whether the former Scottish first minister’s testimony is a threat to his successor Nicola Sturgeon. Presented by Sebastian Payne, with George Parker, Mure Dickie, Robert Shrimsley and special guest Gemma Tetlow. Produced by Anna Dedhar and Josh de la Mare. The sound engineer was Breen Turner and the editor Aimee Keane.
