George Osborne's Budget will come under scrutiny from independent experts and MPs today, amid a row over his plans for a national "living wage" for over-25s.
The Institute for Fiscal Studies will present its analysis of all the Chancellor's measures today, as its director Robert Johnson claimed Osborne was "taking a bet" on the economic impact of the living wage pledge.
Parliamentary debates will also continue today over the Budget measures, as Labour leadership contenders attacked the plans.
Liz Kendall described it as a "con trick", claiming that a wage to live on would need to be "much higher" than the £9 proposed by 2020.
Fellow candidate Andy Burnham said the decision not to start the wage until age 25 would create a "two-tier workforce".
Behind the headlines, the Budget is an incredibly complex economic document, with numbers which won't crunch themselves. If you're confused, ITV News economics editor Richard Edgar breaks it down:
