With Rishi Sunak’s official appointment as UK Prime Minister and the 2022 Autumn Budget scheduled for 17 November, Katharine Arthur, Partner, shares her thoughts on what needs to happen next to bring a measure of stability and reassurance to these challenging times.
As uncertainty and a lack of clarity continues, it’s more important than ever that “the Chancellor’s next steps need to be carefully planned and costed”. Despite the multiple U-turns in recent budget announcements, Katharine highlights that rolling back clear mistakes in policy is a good starting point to regain market confidence, as seen with the reversal of tax cuts in Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s emergency statement in October.
