IoD economist to deliver Spending Review verdictSep 16, 2010
IoD chief economist and director of policy Graeme Leach is to speak at a business lunch held at Doubletree by Hilton hotel, Stadium MK on October 21, the day after the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne presents the Spending Review to Parliament.
The review will set out the government’s spending plans for the years 2011-12 to 2014-15. Mr Leach (pictured) will assess the implications for business and the wider community.
Milton Keynes IOD chairman Jonathan Bailey said: “The publication of this review is the end product of a public consultation process initiated by the government because last year Britain had the largest deficit in peacetime history.
“It is an excellent opportunity to hear an assessment of the review and I am delighted that Graeme is taking time immediately after its release to give us some insights into its likely effects.”
