A recessionary budget from a principled chancellor?
The Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, today confirmed that the UK is now officially in recession. His response was to introduce two new fiscal rules and two new fiscal principles.
- Rule 1: That the UK’s national debt must fall as a share of GDP by the fifth year of a rolling five-year period; and
- Rule 2: That public sector borrowing in the same year must be below 3% of GDP.
Overall, the Autumn Statement is set to improve public finances by £55 billion by 2027-28, with the OBR forecasting both of these rules to be met a year early in 2026-27.
