Spring budget 2024

The Institute for Government's latest analysis, podcasts and events following the spring budget.

On Wednesday 6 March, chancellor Jeremy Hunt delivered his spring budget, only three and a half months after his autumn statement. He presented updated forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility, reflecting recent economic developments. This was the last budget, and possibly the final fiscal event, before the general election later this year. It was therefore an especially important event. 

The Institute for Government set out key things to look out for in the budget and key choices the chancellor needed to make beforehand, and are providing in-depth analysis of his announcements.
