Philip Hammond's Autumn Statement contained few headline-grabbing surprise announcements, but there was, as ever, a mixed response to what the Chancellor had to say.
On a day when he revealed the economy would take a £60 billion hit over the coming five years thanks Brexit, Mr Hammond did have some positive news - namely that fuel duty would be frozen and the National Living Wage increased. He also announced measures to ease cuts to Universal Credit.
Though welcomed by so-called 'JAMs' - those workers deemed 'just about managing' - the measures were not so positively received by their bosses.
One cutlery and silverware firm warned the hike in the living wage will make it more costly to take on new workers who need training.
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.
