Evidence given by Philip Booth, Editorial and Programme Director, Institute of Economic Affairs, Shiv Malik, Investigations Correspondent, The Guardian Paul Johnson, Director, Institute for Fiscal Studies, Andrew Hood, Research Economist, Institute of Fiscal Studies, James Sefton, Professor of Economics, Imperial College London
