NI Fiscal Council publishes its assessment of the NIO's 2022-23 Budget for Northern Ireland

The NI Fiscal Council has published its final assessment of the 2022-23 Budget for Northern Ireland.

The NIO's 2022-23 Budget for Northern Ireland: an assessment cover page

In January 2022 we published The NI Executive’s Draft Budget 2022-25: an assessment, followed by The NI Executive’s 2022-23 Budget: an update in November 2022. As the 2022-23 Budget position has now been set by the NI Office in the absence of an NI Executive we have found it necessary, in our role as independent assessors of ‘budget balance’, to complete the 2022-23 picture by publishing this short paper describing the changes to the funding and spending position for 2022-23 implied by the NIO Budget.
