Anglia Late Edition - November 2017

Anglia Late Edition is the regional politics programme for the East of England presented by political correspondent Emma Hutchinson

Anglia Late Edition looks ahead to next week's Budget, talks about the latest news on the Brexit negotiations and hears from Members of the Youth Parliament from the East of England.

Chancellor Philip Hammond will deliver the first autumn Budget in 20 years on Wednesday 22 November 2017.

It is likely to be make-or-break for the Conservatives beset by political problems and two Cabinet resignations over the past few weeks.

Mr Hammond's last budget in March saw a rapid u-turn after he was accused of breaking a Tory manifesto pledge not to increase National Insurance.

A number of Conservative MPs in the Anglia region have been branded Brexit mutineers because they are unhappy with elements of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill which is current being debated in the House of Commons.

Emma Hutchinson was joined in the studio by three politicians from the East of England.
