Chancellor responds to Treasury Committee on independent economic forecast for emergency budget

22 September 2022

The Treasury Committee publishes the response to its call for an independent economic forecast to be provided at tomorrow’s emergency fiscal event.

Earlier this week, the Committee requested assurance that the Government would publish an Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) forecast alongside Friday’s fiscal event.

This followed confirmation that the OBR began preparatory work on a forecast in July for a possible September announcement. The OBR committed to providing the most complete picture of the economic outlook as possible, and to a standard that meets the requirements of the OBR Charter.
