Have a go at spending the NI budget

Digital Staff


PLENTY of people have an opinion on how the budget should we spent and this new game from the BBC allows you to make decisions on  MLA pay, corporation tax, tuition fees, teachers' pay, travel for the over 60s and school transport.

At 9pm tonight on BBC One Northern Ireland presenters Tara Mills and William Crawley will front the show Spend It Like Stormont in which they speak to the people in charge of Stormont departments to find out why services are under pressure in the absence of an Assembly.
