Treasury invites suggestions for 2015 Budget
21 Jan 2015
HM Treasury is encouraging interested parties to submit their ideas for consideration ahead of the 2015 Budget.
As part of its stated aim of ‘open and transparent policy-making’, interest groups, individuals and representative bodies are being invited to contribute comments and ‘original and innovative ideas’.
HM Treasury has also published guidance on the correct procedure for making a representation, which advises that ‘representations should contain policy suggestions for the upcoming fiscal event and explain the policy rationale, costs, benefits and deliverability of proposals’.
‘It should also be evidence based, providing clear arguments on how it contributes to the aims of the Budget.’
Chancellor George Osborne will present the 2015 Budget on Wednesday 18 March, less than two months before the General Election.
