Is the former Essex boy on the right track or going off the rails? Peter Gee from Goodmayes, Essex. Peter Gee retired from the civil service 20 years ago and works as a volunteer and trustee at Redbridge foodbank, which helps people who have problems with benefits caused by delays or changes to their circumstances, and those, such as migrants, with “no recourse to public funds”. Mr Gee, 77, said that the chancellor had given the impression he “realises there are families who are feeling the pinch, but exactly what he intends to do for them is a good question”.
