Chancellor Rishi Sunak delivered his 2021 Budget on 27th October and predicted that it would deliver a stronger economy for the British people including stronger growth, public finance and employment. He was optimistic about the UK moving to a new economic model of higher wages and productivity. Critics have focussed on the cost-of-living implications and the lack of funding provision for the green transition while some Conservatives have criticised the level of government spending. Andrew Smith, Chief Economic Adviser to the Industry Forum, will review the proposals and outline some of the external factors which may impact the UK economic recovery. Vicky Pryce and Kate Bell will add their comments before a general discussion and questions on economic prospects for 2022 and beyond.
