Budget day

March 23, 2011 10:00 AM

Anthony J. Evans, a 2020 Tax Commissioner, blogged yesterday for the Spectator Coffee House site about some principles that should guide the Chancellor while he announces his Budget this afternoon. Our Director Matthew Sinclair also offered his thoughts to the ConservativeHome website this morning. This morning's newspapers carry mostly positive headlines about today's announcement, which should please the Treasury. But we won't know the full details until around 1.30 this afternoon, and the TPA will be watching just as closely for any nasties in the Red Book.

Matthew Sinclair and Ruth Lea will be live blogging their reactions during the speech on the Wall Street Journal Europe website, which you can watch here. Also, 2020 Tax Commissioner Anthony J. Evans will be blogging live for Reuters, so there will be plenty of expert opinion to tune in to while Osborne delivers the Budget. Look out for more TPA reaction here on the homepage after the announcement, too.
