Response to the Comprehensive Spending Review

Thursday, 21 October 2010
09:00 - 12:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London SW1H 0AD


  • Will Hutton, executive vice chair, The Work Foundation
  • Stephen Bevan, managing director, The Work Foundation

While the public sector organisations brace for impact, there will no doubt be a debate about how cost reductions will be made, which services are core, how to define ‘the front line’, the role of the private sector in both delivering public services and creating jobs which can compensate for job losses in the public sector.

As part of the morning’s discussion, Will Hutton, executive vice chair at The Work Foundation will address the group with a discussion of the winners and losers of the Comprehensive Spending Review and what the ‘landscape of next’ looks like, followed by a structured exchange of thoughts and ideas from all participants.

Questions addressed as part of the discussion include:

  • Is the CSR about deficit reduction or about smaller government?
  • Is the CSR good or bad news for the private sector?
  • What are the implications of the CSR for citizens?

This is an invitation-only event.  For more information, please contact Susannah Mountfort on 020 7976 3509 or
