HM Treasury has confirmed that Chancellor Rishi Sunak will deliver the Autumn 2021 Budget on Wednesday 27 October.

The Chancellor launched Spending Review 2021 on 7 September, which will conclude on 27 October and will be presented alongside the Autumn Budget. Government departments’ resource and capital budgets from 2022-23 to 2024-25 will be outlined in the Spending Review.

The Spending Review is also expected to set out how the government will deliver on its promises to the British public through leading the transition to net zero across the country; ensuring strong and innovative public services; levelling up across the UK to increase and spread opportunity; and delivering its Plan for Growth.

Commenting on the Spending Review, the Chancellor said: ‘Despite the worst economic recession in 300 years, we have not only got people back into work through the Plan for Jobs but continued to deliver on the priorities of the British people.

‘At the Spending Review later this year, I will set out how we will continue to invest in public services and drive growth while keeping the public finances on a sustainable path.’

“The Budget will set out what the government plans to spend its money on over the next year. It is important to keep up to date when the Budget is presented as it is likely to include changes that affect you.”
