Election 2019: What do the manifestos mean?

Thursday 28 November 2019, 09:00 - 10:00

The 2019 General Election manifestos set out ambitious competing visions for government. This expert panel event looked at what the manifestos tell us about the key issues facing the country, and how plausible these rival programmes for government really are.

Our panel included:

  • Rachel Sylvester, political columnist at The Times
  • Joseph Owen, Director of Brexit programme at the Institute for Government
  • Giles Wilkes, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government and former special adviser to Theresa May
  • Nick Davies, Director of Public Services programme at the Institute for Government

The event was chaired by Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government.

There was an opportunity for questions from the audience.
