The Spring 2017 UK budget, due to be published just weeks before the deadline for triggering Article 50, promises to be one of the most significant in recent years. This budget, which is the last to be delivered in spring before the UK moves to a single consolidated budget, is expected to provide insight into the Government’s agenda and economic policy approach to a post-Brexit Britain.

Danielle Haralambous and William Hobbs will join a panel to canvas different perspectives of the 2017 UK Budget and its political, economic and business impacts.

Final panellists to be announced soon.
