Reflections on the Autumn Statement

Friday 6 December 2013 Public Finances and the Economy

At this private roundtable held the morning after the Autumn Statement, Robert Chote – Chairman of the Office for Budget Responsibility – set out the OBR’s thinking behind the Economic and fiscal outlook.

His presentation was followed by short responses from RIchard Lloyd (Executive Director, Which?), Professor Alison Wolf (King’s College, London) and Peter Kellner (President of YouGov) and by a general discussion around the table of the major themes of the Autumn Statement.

The event is one of a regular series of ‘morning-after’ sessions hosted by the Resolution Foundation to provide early analysis of each Autumn Statement, Budget or Spending Review.
