Money Observer podcast: Budget ‘surprises’ and what plans means for our readers’ finances

Money Observer editor Faith Glasgow and deputy editor Kyle Caldwell reflect on what the Budget means for Money Observer readers, discussing the pensions tax allowance taper and pensions tax relief.

In addition, they consider who emerges as winners and losers following Rishi Sunak’s announcements. They also question whether the increase in the Junior Isa allowance will benefit many parents and grandparents.

Cat lovers in particular may be seduced by the pictures.
