first look at the papers over on the BBC News Channel, but now on BBC

:00:00.3:59:59

One, it's time for the Good evening. The Chancellor, George

:00:00.:00:11.

Osborne, says his Budget will benefit you if you are a maker, a

:00:12.:00:16.

doer or a saver. Some big btsinesses in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire

:00:17.:00:19.

are welcoming a freeze in the pollution tax on their energy bills.

:00:20.:00:24.

One union leader says it cotld help secure the future of steel laking in

:00:25.:00:30.

Scunthorpe. Paul Lead reports. The Scunthorpe Steel Works, the town's

biggest employer and a big tser of energy. It means they creatd a lot

:00:34.:00:37.

of polluting carbon, so this from the Chancellor was welcome. I am

:00:38.:00:40.

capping the carbon price support rate at ?18 per tonne. It's a very

:00:41.:00:46.

welcome measure. We are ple`sed that the Government appear to have

:00:47.:00:49.

finally listened to our representations and that of

:00:50.:00:53.

industry. We do have a concdrn however that it could be sedn as too

:00:54.:00:58.

little too late. This East Xorkshire caravan maker also largely welcomed

:00:59.:01:02.

the Budget. Around four in ten UK caravans are made here at Swift in

:01:03.:01:07.

Cottingham. But that freeze on taxing highly polluting forls of

:01:08.:01:10.

energy is causing concern for environmentalists and green energy

:01:11.:01:14.

businesses on the Humber. It does affect green energy on the Humber,

:01:15.:01:17.

in that this Government has increasingly taken a more and more

:01:18.:01:21.

sceptical view of renewable and it has actually sort of put a lot of

:01:22.:01:25.

pressure on our sector to control costs and that's what they're doing

:01:26.:01:28.

with the carbon freeze, controlling costs on manufacturing. So ht does

:01:29.:01:31.

put pressure on. I think thd renewable energy industry as a whole

:01:32.:01:34.

and offshore wind in partictlar really does have to focus on how it

:01:35.:01:37.

can actually deliver energy value. In a range of other announcdments,

:01:38.:01:41.

our local air ambulances and rescue boats like the Humber rescud and

:01:42.:01:44.

Hornsey rescue will no longdr have to pay VAT on their fuel. Bhngo

:01:45.:01:48.

halls on the east coast got their wish, tax on their earnings falling

:01:49.:01:51.

from 20% to 10% after a campaign. There was a grant to the Magna Carta

:01:52.:01:55.

Trust to support the 800th anniversary of the signing of the

:01:56.:01:58.

document next year. Lincoln is home to one of only four surviving copies

:01:59.:02:02.

of the Magna Carta. And for savers, a tripling to ?15,000 a year savings

:02:03.:02:06.

reaction. I am a GP and most of my patients are probably no more than

:02:15.:02:17.

15,000. They're not going to benefit from this at all. I ain't got 'owt

:02:18.:02:24.

to start with, they took it all away already. I'm retired. I havd a fixed

:02:25.:02:28.

income, so, no, it's not re`lly going to affect me. Our Polhtical

:02:29.:02:38.

Editor Tim Iredale is in Westminster. What are our local MPs

:02:39.:02:43.

saying about the Budget? Well some of the measures announced in the

:02:44.:02:48.

Budget haven't led to a gre`t deal amount of party political

:02:49.:02:51.

disagreement. Such as the announcements on pensions and

:02:52.:02:57.

savings and beer duty and bhngo tax. If you think our MPs will stop

:02:58.:03:05.

scrabbling `` squabbling thdn think again. Labour MPs have launched on

:03:06.:03:11.

attack what that say is a f`ilure to deal with the cost`of`living crisis

:03:12.:03:18.

The fact you can now put 15,000 in an ISA, I don't know anyone in my

:03:19.:03:22.

circle of friends who have got 15,000 quid stashed under the bed,

:03:23.:03:25.

waiting desperately to stick it into a savings plan. It is about jobs. We

:03:26.:03:29.

need good quality jobs. People in Hull East are ?1,600 a year worse

:03:30.:03:32.

off as a result of this Torx Government's policies. . Thd

:03:33.:03:36.

Government has denied the accusation that they haven't done enough to

:03:37.:03:41.

help hard`working family. The planning minister and Grantham MP

:03:42.:03:47.

told BBC Look North that people in Lincolnshire are better off than

:03:48.:03:52.

they were under Labour If the Labour Government had continued in office,

:03:53.:03:56.

fuel duty would now be 20 pdnce per litre higher than it is now, because

:03:57.:04:00.

we have frozen it for sever`l years. In Lincolnshire, we have got a

:04:01.:04:03.

Council Tax freeze now happdning I think for the fourth or fifth year

:04:04.:04:09.

in a row. . One measure that was not announced in the Budget which many

:04:10.:04:13.

MPs hoped for is the confirlation this the Hull to Selby railway line

:04:14.:04:19.

will be electrified in time for the City of Culture celebration. We have

:04:20.:04:24.

told the Chancellor hadn't for got about it but there will be `n update

:04:25.:04:29.

tomorrow. This could happen, the electrification of hull toll Selby

:04:30.:04:34.

rail link, if the Chancellor hasn't spent all his money on beer and

:04:35.:04:41.

bingo! Thank you. Research by the BBC has found some supermarket fish

:04:42.:04:45.

` much of which is processed in Grimsby ` has failed qualitx tests.

:04:46.:04:48.

The Rip off Britain programle tested fish at major supermarkets `nd

:04:49.:04:51.

concluded nearly half of it shouldn't be on sale. Amand` White

:04:52.:04:54.

reports. Sea fresh and sold at Grimsby state`of`the`art fish

:04:55.:04:57.

market, but how fresh is it when it gets to the supermarket? We asked

:04:58.:05:04.

people in Hull. At a superm`rket? Well over a week. A couple of days.

:05:05.:05:11.

Three, four days maybe. BBC current affairs programme Rip Off Britain

:05:12.:05:17.

decided to investigate. Samples from four supermarkets were testdd by

:05:18.:05:20.

fish quality expert, Richard Chivers. Bland. There was a little

:05:21.:05:28.

bit of off odour there. It hs neutral. Yeah, there's something not

:05:29.:05:33.

nice there. Sorry, it's off. Five of the 12 samples were deemed

:05:34.:05:34.

unsuitable for sale. ASDA s`id: Sainsbury's, whose scores wdre

acceptable said: If it is coming from Iceland, or

:05:43.:05:56.

it's coming from Norway, it takes six days on a boat, it will then

:05:57.:05:59.

spend two days in our fish processing plant in Grimsby and then

:06:00.:06:03.

it will go to store from thdre. Fish will survive packed on ice for 1

:06:04.:06:07.

days and can still be eaten after that. We aim to get ours to plate

:06:08.:06:11.

much quicker than that, less than half that time. Hull fishmonger Paul

:06:12.:06:14.

Simpson buys his fish at thd same market as the supermarkets, but can

:06:15.:06:18.

have it on sale just two hotrs later. The perfect cod filldt.

:06:19.:06:21.

That's what you need to be looking at. It's glistening, it looks fresh,

:06:22.:06:24.

there is no dullness to it whatsoever. Not surprisinglx, Paul

:06:25.:06:30.

believes fresh fish is one larket in which the supermarkets just can t

:06:31.:06:38.

compete. Let's take a look `t the weather with Paul Hudson. Hdllo

:06:39.:06:44.

well tomorrow will be fine hn the morning, but rain will spre`d from

:06:45.:06:48.

the west later. For most, mtch of tomorrow will be fine. But this cold

:06:49.:06:52.

front will bring rain towards the commute tomorrow afternoon. So it is

:06:53.:06:58.

fine at the moment. It is whndy especially in parts of east

:06:59.:07:04.

Yorkshire. Temperatures arotnd seven Celsius. Tomorrow morning is bright

:07:05.:07:09.

with some good spells of sunshine. Through the afternoon clouds will

:07:10.:07:13.

increase and from mid to late afternoon we will see rain spreading

:07:14.:07:18.

from the west. But warm across south eastern parts around 15 degrees

:07:19.:07:24.

around The Wash. That's all from the late team. Look North is back

:07:25.:07:27.

tomorrow from 6.25. Hope yot can join us then. Bye for now.

:07:28.:07:33.

night it will be heavy in places. This is the outlook: Bright enough

:07:34.:07:35.

for Friday and the weekend but much colder and some of the showers could

:07:36.:07:36.

have a wintry nature. Cloud coming in from the Atlantic.

:07:37.:07:59.

When it moves through we will get cooler conditions with lively

:08:00.:08:01.

showers. But mild overnight cooler conditions with lively

:08:02.:08:05.

south-westerly breeze dragging cloud across England and Wales. As you can

:08:06.:08:12.

see the heaviest rain and strongest winds overnight are confined to

:08:13.:08:15.

Scotland and northern Ireland. Wet and windy here but it is an mild

:08:16.:08:21.

night with the cloud cover and breeze. But, a miserable start

:08:22.:08:22.
