This week saw one of the set piece events of the Parliamentary calendar – the Autumn Statement by the Chancellor, the Rt. Hon. Philip Hammond MP. The Autumn Statement traditionally allows the Government to respond to changes in the economy since the Budget Statement in March.
This week MPs have returned to Parliament following one of the busiest summer recesses of recent years. Dominating the Parliamentary agenda for the coming months will be the decision taken in June by the British people to leave the EU.
