The Chancellor, Rt Hon Philip Hammond MP, delivered the 2018 Budget on 29 October. There were a number of tax and spending announcements of relevance to local government, and the Chancellor outlined the trajectory of overall public spending for the 2019 Spending Review.
In response to the Budget we have issued a media statement, and our Chairman, Lord Porter, gave a number of media interviews to offer local government’s initial reaction.
We have analysed the Chancellor’s speech, Budget book, and other announcements made, and picked out the key highlights for local government. These are listed in the below document and we will be publishing our full comprehensive briefing containing an LGA view tomorrow.
All other documents related the Budget 2018 are available on our Chancellor's Budgets page.
