Tory mp concerned about delay in publication of obr analysis

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Tory MP concerned about delay in publication of OBR analysis” – below is their description.

Conservative MP Mel Stride, who chairs the Treasury Select Committee, has told Sky News he is unhappy about the projected date when the Office of Budget Responsibility will publish its analysis of the government’s plans for the economy.

Prime Minister Liz Truss said this morning there are no plans to publish the OBR’s analysis before 23 November, when the Chancellor will make another financial statement.

Asked if that was good enough, Mr Stride said: “No, I don’t think it is. Because right at the heart of the problems we are discussing here is a lack of confidence that the markets have had in the fiscal credibility of the government’s policies.

“And the way that you establish that fiscal credibility is you have, firstly, credible fiscal targets. And we don’t yet know what those are or when they’re going to bite.”
