Treasury Committee requests economic impact assessment of lockdown from Treasury

3 November 2020

Rt Hon. Mel Stride MP, Chair of the Treasury Committee, has written to Rt Hon. Rishi Sunak MP, Chancellor of the Exchequer, to request the economic impact assessment of interventions that have been considered by the Government, including the lockdown measures that the Government intends to introduce on 5 November.

Chair's comment

Commenting on the correspondence, Mr Stride said:

“As part of our inquiry into the economic impact of coronavirus, the Treasury Committee has examined the wider modelling of the effects of the pandemic.

“To aid this inquiry, and also to assist MPs ahead of the vote on Wednesday on new lockdown measures, it would be helpful if the Treasury published the work that it has carried out in respect of the various interventions considered by the Government.”
