Chair of Fiscal Council writes to Finance Committee in advance of evidence session

Sir Robert Chote, the Chair of the Fiscal Council wrote to the Finance Committee providing an early indication of the views being expressed by stakeholders.

Sir Robert identified a number of important themes being raised by stakeholders, including the need for independence, the importance of education, and improvements that could be made to processes. He also set out initial thoughts on the Fiscal Council’s workplan, including an introductory publication aimed at explaining NI’s current funding and spending arrangements.

The Council hopes to complete its engagement meetings this month, depending on stakeholders diaries, and following that, to publish its introductory report.
