Live with Littlewood Spring Statement Special

On tonight’s Live with Littlewood, we’ll be asking whether the Chancellor’s Spring Statement will provide the security he promises. Will the Tories ever slash taxes? Is state largesse here to stay? And how can the government go for growth?

IEA Director General Mark Littlewood will be joined by MP Greg Smith, Economist Vicky Pryce, Duncan Simpson of the TaxPayers’ Alliance and the IEA’s own Christopher Snowdon.

Tune in from 6pm here.

With unemployment rising two a two-year high and thousands of post-furlough redundancies expected, what’s next for the UK economy?

Rishi Sunak says he wants to “get creative” to support jobs and employment.  But how will he do that?

And are the testing fiasco and the rebellion over the Internal Market Bill jeopardising Boris Johnson’s premiership?

All this and more will be put to the (readily-available) test in tonight’s Live with Littlewood from the IEA.

Joining host Mark Littlewood will be the Times’ science editor Tom Whipple, ConservativeHome’s Mark Wallace, and former Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips.
