Budget Response: A Budget for jobs and growth?

Thursday, 22 March 2012
18:00 - 19:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London, SW1H 0AD


• Adrian Bailey MP, Chair of Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee

The Event

The March Budget takes place against great uncertainty. Is the UK economy on the verge of recession or a US-style recovery? How high will unemployment go – and what measures can we take to help the most disadvantaged? Will the Chancellor build on the Autumn Statement measures to support investment and innovation? The Work Foundation’s annual post Budget event will analyse and debate these key questions.

Who attended?

Government and public affairs professionals and those with a keen interest in economic policy and the labour market.

Why did people attend?

The event reviewed the prospects for the economy and the labour market, assess and comment on the Chancellor’s Budget, and set out what else the Chancellor could do to give business, investors, consumers and entrepreneurs more confidence in the future.


This event was by invitation only, if you would like to find out more information about this event then please contact Alice Holland.
