He said that the minimum wage will rise by 30p an hour that the Government will raise the income tax free personal allowance to £12,500 by the 2020 at the latest.

The Chancellor announced one significant tax rise in his Autumn Statement which some may see as a little bit sneaky.
The Chancellor said his first, and now last, Autumn address was for a new chapter in the UK's history but forecasts present a bleak future.
The Chancellor said his Autumn Statement gives "help to those who need it now". But those in the struggling social care system may disagree.
