Ahead of the 2020 Budget being announced on 11 March, this educational video from the UK Parliament explored what the Budget is, why it is important, and Parliament’s role in checking and approving the resulting Finance Bill. Researchers from the House of Commons library answered viewer-submitted questions.
This educational video is part of the Learn Live Sessions. Learn Live is a fun, interactive approach to engage students with the work of the UK Parliament. Each session lasts around 30 minutes and is streamed on YouTube.
