There are only three weeks to go until the Government unveils its budget for 2021, and speculation is rife on what we may expect.

The 2020 Budget was strongly shaped around the Covid-19 recovery, and with international borders still closed to everyone but Australia, and the global economy still being impacted by the ongoing pandemic, 2021 is expected to be no different.

The 2021 Budget will be unveiled on May 20th. NZ Herald political reporter Jason Walls joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss what we might see from the Budget this year, and if any announcements are coming before then.
