This briefing draws on evidence from JFR research to show how potential policy decisions in the Budget would affect poor places and people in the UK. It looks at six issues: raising the income tax threshold; tax credits, work incentives and poverty rates; the ‘mansion tax’ and housing; increasing housing supply; older people; and funding social care.
