Conservatives vs Labour: Budget 2014 – Good news?

Wednesday 30th April 2014 at 7:00pm
Lightfoot Room, Divinity School, St John’s College

On 19 March 2014, Chancellor George Osborne delivered his Budget Statement to Parliament, setting out the government’s action plan for the year in building a resilient economy. The real question is whether Osborne’s Budget and forecast of 2.7% growth is a signal for sustained recovery, and whether this will hold steady or slow in the run up to the 2015 election.

Take a break from Easter term revision and join the new 2014/15 committee of The Marshall Society for its first event of Easter Term – ‘Conservative vs. Labour: The Budget 2014 – Good news?’ to gain an insight into macroeconomic policy changes occurring today and a budget perspective from a Conservative and Labour point of view, as well as the chance to ask our speakers any burning questions. We hope to see you there!

  • Nick Clarke – Chairman of the Cambridge Conservative Association. Until recently, Nick was Leader of Cambridgeshire County Council. In the past, Nick ran successful businesses and was in the RAF.
