The main event which affects family finances takes place today when the Chancellor makes the Autumn Statement. This is basically an update on the figures announced in the Budget earlier in the year. New forecasts will be made and invariably every Chancellor uses the opportunity to make slight adjustments to spending plans.
Before the main event there will be Questions to the Secretary of Scotland and then Questions to the Prime Minister. After the Autumn Statement there will be another in the series of debate being tabled by the government on the effects of the UK leaving the EU this time the focus will be on transport.
