Treasury Committee

Spending Round 2019 inquiry

Inquiry status:

Scope of the inquiry

The OBR was not asked by the Government to produce an economic and fiscal outlook for this fiscal event. Instead, Rt Hon. Sajid Javid MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, used the OBR’s March forecast as the basis for his claim that he was sticking to the fiscal rules for Spending Round 2019. The Committee plans to ask the OBR on whether this was appropriate.
