Autumn Budget and Spending Review 2021 – A Cicero/amo analysis

By Lizzy Tomlin, Account Director, and the Cicero/amo UK Public Affairs team

Cicero/amo is pleased to share with you our analysis of the 2021 Budget Statement and Spending Review, which provided a number of ‘firsts’ for Chancellor Rishi Sunak – the first multi-year Spending Review since the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit, and the first Budget delivered by Sunak which set out a long-term economic plan for this Government.

For business, this was a positive Statement following a tumultuous relationship with Government of late, having been positioned as one of five pillars to deliver a stronger economy. However, announcements on the green finance agenda were a glaring omission despite the UK hosting the COP26 Summit in a matter of days, and an anticipated rise in inflation threaten to kybosh the Chancellor’s extra wiggle room following the economic recovery from the pandemic.
