TODAY’S Spring Budget comes with a raft of changes to households – and our tool explains what it all means for you.

Chancellor Jeremy Hunt delivered his speech to the House of Commons – and it brings both good and bad news.

During his speech, Jeremy Hunt announced that parents will get 30 hours of free childcare in a bid to get Brits back to work.

Those with one and two-year-olds will get 30 hours while those looking after three-year-olds will get extra help too.

He also hiked the hourly rate paid by the government to childcare providers, who have long said the help they get doesn’t cover the costs.

Elsewhere, Mr Hunt has given millions of workers a pension boost by scrapping the lifetime pension allowance (LTA) to tempt people to work longer.

The Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) cap will also continue at £2,500 for another three months.

It was meant to rise to £3,000 a year for households in April but Hunt scrapped those plans today.

This will save the average household around £160, the government said.

Other changes include an increase in cigarette prices and booze.

How are you impacted by the Budget?

What is the Budget?

The Budget is when the Government outlines its plans for tax hikes, cuts and things like changes to Universal Credit and the minimum wage.

It’s different to the Spending Review, which sets out how much public cash will go towards funding certain departments, devolved governments and services, such as the NHS.

The Budget is read out in the House of Commons by the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

It was Jeremy Hunt’s first Spring Budget as Chancellor.

Today was the first full Budget since last year, following the mini-Budget in September and the Autumn Statement in November.

Mr Hunt has told Tories he will “put meat on the bones” of the PM’s plan to fix the economy.
