Budgets and fiscal events


The UK’s major fiscal events – Budgets, Spring Statements and Spending Reviews – provide the Chancellor with an opportunity to shape Britain’s political economy through major policy announcements. Our work focuses on the policies under consideration in the run-up to fiscal events, and what policy decisions and the latest economic outlook (published by the Office for Budget Responsibility) mean for the state of Britain, and household living standards.
