Today Alistair Darling will use his pre-election budget speech to deliver what is expected to be the most political budget in decades.
With a general election looming and the economy still in the balance, this year's budget will be more important than ever to a hospitality sector hoping there will be some break for business and a boost for tourism.
To keep you up to date with all that's happening, as it happens, Caterersearch.com will be following the budget with live blogging on what is being announced and how it will affect your business.
Our blogging event will allow you to join the debate in real time and post your thoughts alongside those of our journalists and industry experts.
Join the debate from 12.30pm on 24 March here
