Chancellor confirms Spending Round will be delivered on 4 September
The Spending Round will be delivered on Wednesday, 4 September, the Chancellor of the Exchequer has confirmed.
The fast-tracked Spending Round, setting departmental budgets for 2020-21, will be delivered on 4 September, the Chancellor of the Exchequer said earlier this week.
As announced earlier this month, a full multi-year Spending Review is now due to take place in 2020.
Chancellor Sajid Javid will announce the conclusions of the Spending Round in a statement to Parliament.
The Spending Round will deliver on the Prime Minister’s priorities – including health, schools and the police – while still meeting the existing fiscal rules.
“Thanks to the hard work of the British people over the last decade, we can afford to spend more on the people’s priorities while still meeting the fiscal rules,” the government said in a statement.
