Martin Lewis spoke to the Chancellor on Teesport and covered a range of topics that his followers have been asking him about – including tax thresholds; those excluded from self-emplyment grants, furlough and benefits; universal credit; and stamp duty and mortgage prisons.
Yesterday, Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced the town would be the new home of the Treasury North campus, where 750 jobs will be relocated, as well as a free port in Teesside.
