Budgeting for Brexit: Hammond under pressure to deliver bold plan for UK

Britain's Finance Minister Philip Hammond needs to strike the right balance to bolster Prime Minister Theresa May's fragile coalition. But an economy weakened by uncertainty over Brexit means he'll only have limited room for manoeuvre. Stephen Carroll asks Neil Wilson, Senior Market Analyst at ETX Capital, whether we should expect any big announcements in next week's budget.

Also on the programme:

  • We look at the possible outcomes of Venezuela's debt crisis, after the country missed a number of payment deadlines.
     
  • And an island for sale: how the residents of one Scottish outpost are trying to make their home their own.

By Stephen CARROLL , Kate MOODY , Agnès LE COSSEC
