Spring Budget 2020: IFS analysis

The Chancellor is due to deliver his first Budget on Wednesday 11 March 2020. This will also be the first Budget of this Parliament, and the first since Autumn 2018. IFS researchers will present their initial analysis of the Chancellor's announcements on the public finances, spending on public services, and the tax and the benefit system on the following day, Thursday 12 March, at a lunchtime briefing chaired and introduced by IFS Director Paul Johnson in central London.

Registration will take place between 12:30 and 13:00, when a sandwich lunch will be served. The briefing will commence at 13:00.
