Episode notes

Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, has given a speech outlining his plans for UK economic growth - but it’s got many people asking where is the detail?


Mr Hunt said reducing inflation is the priority over tax cuts, that he intends to utilise opportunities from Brexit and increase investment outside of London.

In part one, David Bond, the Evening Standard’s deputy political editor, looks at how the first economic speech since the Autumn Statement has gone down with Conservatives as well as the general public. 

In part two, Jonathan Portes, professor of Economics and Public Policy at King’s College London, gives his analysis on the government's vision for UK economic growth.
