Watch on-demand: What To Do Now - The Spending Review’s impact on departments and civil servants
The 2021 Spending Review was the first review since 2015 and, according to chancellor Rishi Sunak in the House of Commons, it was a settlement to create “an economy fit for a new age of optimism”.
This session looked at what the review means for civil servants — from what departments got the most from the chancellor, what the renewed focus on policy evaluation will lead to, and where departments can make efficiency savings.
