Rishi Sunak has named October 27 as the date for the three-year Spending Review, as well as his Autumn Budget.
The Budget and Spending Review will see the Chancellor set out how he plans to balance the books following a number of difficult decisions on how to repair the economy following the Covid pandemic.
The date was announced during the Prime Minister’s address to the Commons on Tuesday, where he confirmed controversial plans to increase National Insurance by 1.25%.
