Chancellor George Osborne has delivered his first spring Budget.

On Thursday 24 March at noon, presenters Vincent Duggleby and Paul Lewis took your questions on how the Budget will affect your personal finances.

Mr Osborne billed his measures as a ''budget for growth''.

Key points include: the cancellation of a 4p rise in fuel duty and increasing the amount people can earn before paying tax by a further £630 from April 2012.

Looking at the small print of the Budget with the Money Box team were:

Will Hadwen, Working Families

Mike Warburton, director of tax at Grant Thornton

Michelle Cracknell, Bluerock Financial Services.

Presenter: Vincent Duggleby and Paul Lewis
Producer: Lesley McAlpine
