A look ahead to the Budget
The ITV Business Club in the Anglia region has been discussing George Osborne's upcoming Budget.
Every taxpayer is to receive a personal statement spelling out exactly what their tax is spent on.
Chancellor George Osborne paid tribute to the heroism and courage of Lance Corporal James Ashworth.
The Corby soldier was awarded a posthumous VC for his courage after he was killed on patrol with the 1st Battalion The Grenadier Guards in Helmand Province last June.
He was protecting his comrades when he died.
The Chancellor mentioned the 23-year-old when announcing that the Military would receive the full recommended increase in "X-Factor" payment in May and to be exempted from changes to progression pay.

Hundreds of civil servants across the region are expected to take part in a budget day strike today.
The Passport Office in Peterborough is one of the offices likely to be affected by the industrial action. A demonstration is also expected outside the tax office in Norwich.
The strike has been called by the Public and Commercial Services Union which is unhappy with plans to restructure pensions and terms of employment.
George Osborne has promised his third Budget as Chancellor of the Exchequer will be "for working people" to help low and middle earners.
The Chancellor is expected to bring up several points, including:
1) RAISING TAX THRESHOLD
As of April people won't have to start paying tax until they earn just more than £8,000 but it's thought George Osborne may increase that yet again to around £9,000.
2) CHILD BENEFITS
The Chancellor has said he'll scrap child benefits for households where one parent pays the higher rate of tax but it's proved controversial.
3) FUEL DUTY
There is a planned rise of 3p due to come in August but will the Chancellor could cancel or postpone that.
4) PERSONAL STATEMENT
It's expected we'll all get our own annual personal tax statements spelling out exactly how much we pay and what it's spent on.

Campaigners who are trying to convince the government to reduce fuel duty will be at Westminster this lunchtime as part of National Fair Fuel Day. Among them is the MP for Harlow Robert Halfon, who's calling on the Chancellor not to impose any fuel tax increase in the Budget.
Thousands of people are expected to take part in the mass lobby this afternoon. Fair Fuel UK wants the politicians to meet those most affected by the high costs of petrol and diesel.
