In many ways, I ducked the issues in ‘A balancing act’, because on the subject of spending cuts it just waved its hands and said “yeah, we’ll need some of those”. I knew all along that my colleague John Springford was organising a conference for the Autumn that would look at this issue in proper detail.
The conference is on 12th November, and more details of it are given in this blogpost. We have a strong line up from countries that have survived similar fiscal trauma. Sweden, Canada, Australia are represented, and there are a collection of UK experts and parliamentarians to give the UK perpsective.
Come along. I know the readership of this blog is a select and discerning crew. I’d be delighted and honoured to see you in the audience.
The conference will take place between 9 am and 3.15 pm on Thursday 12 November, at 45 Millbank. It is sponsored by Ernst and Young and the Canadian Foreign Ministry.
