Office for Budget Responsibility


The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) was established on 17 May 2010 as an interim body. It was headed by a Budget Responsibility Committee of three: Sir Alan Budd, Geoffrey Dicks and Graham Parker, and had a secretariat of eight. One of the tasks of the Interim OBR was to provide advice on the arrangements for the permanent OBR. Legislation was expected in autumn 2010. In July 2010 the Treasury Committee announced a swift inquiry to consider how that legislation should be framed.
