Treasury Committee questions economists on Spring Budget

Professor Diane Coyle, Bennett Institute for Public Policy, was invited to give evidence.

The Treasury Committee held a series of evidence sessions to scrutinise the Spring Budget 2023 on Tuesday 21 March 2023 at the Houses of Parliament. The cross-party Committee of MPs gathered economists’ views on the measures announced in the budget.

Witnesses included: Professor Diane Coyle, University of Cambridge; Torsten Bell, Chief Executive, Resolution Foundation; Paul Johnson, Director, Institute for Fiscal Studies; Tony Wilson, Director, Institute for Employment Studies.

“It’s partly about coordination, it’s partly about scale, and it’s absolutely about consistency or rather the lack of consistency.”

Professor Diane Coyle, Bennett Professor of Public Policy
