MPs Call for Full Fiscal Forecast Alongside Mini-Budget

Britain’s influential Treasury Committee in Parliament has called on the chancellor of the exchequer to guarantee that Friday’s mini-budget will be audited by the government’s independent fiscal watchdog.

The request was made in response to reports suggesting the new chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng, will unveil a series of tax changes without the usual costings by the Office for Budget Responsibility.
