UK Chancellor Jeremy Hunt announced the long-awaited Autumn Statement yesterday, detailing the new government’s tax and spend commitments alongside the OBR’s economic forecast. The delay of the budget provided Sunak and Hunt with more time to agree on areas of public spending to potentially cut. It seeks to demonstrate the economic competence and fiscal credibility that was damaged as a result of the Truss premiership.

On this bonus podcast, UK Country Director Alex Dawson, Lead UK Politics Analyst Joe Armitage, and Political Due Diligence Practice Director Matt Bevington unpack the details of the statement, the market reaction, implications for business, and what we can infer about Rishi Sunak’s premiership and the Conservatives position ahead of the next general election.
