About this event

A Spending Review is a difficult balancing act at the best of times, forcing Chancellors to make difficult choices between competing government departments and services, and trade off higher spending against the tax or borrowing needed to pay for it. This year's Spending Review is likely to be the most difficult to date. It comes after a decade of austerity, amidst the most severe economic downturn in centuries, with the nature of the UK's future relationship with the EU still uncertain, and the long-term implications of Covid-19 for our economy and public services not yet known.
