The Chancellor Jeremy Hunt is finalising spending plans ahead of Wednesday’s Autumn Statement.

Laura’s been speaking to him this morning, as well as his opposite number from Labour, Rachel Reeves.

And Paddy’s been hearing from people across the country who’ve told him what they would like to hear from the chancellor.

Economics editor Faisal Islam is in the studio to talk it all through.
