Budget Day: Newshub Politics breaks it down in three minutes

After a week marred by scandal and drama, the Government has finally released its Wellbeing Budget.

It's the hottest date in the political calendar.

Billions of dollars has been allocated including a record amount for mental health services, at $1.9 billion. A large amount of that will go to boosting frontline mental health services.

Rail, schools and hospitals, and child wellbeing have also been significantly invested in.

Schools from deciles 1-7 will have the option of ditching the school donation and instead getting a $150 payment per child. There's also an increase to benefits, indexing benefits to the average wage.

Defence gets $1.5 billion and the environment gets just under $500 million ($479 million).

Newshub Politics' Anna Bracewell-Worrall, Jenna Lynch and Political Editor Tova O'Brien break down the Budget and the week that was in three minutes.
