The Spending Round will be delivered on Wednesday 4 September, the Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed yesterday (27 August).

The fast-tracked Spending Round will set departmental budgets for 2020/21. 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.
