The vote to leave the EU sent an initial shock through the markets, and led to much speculation about the implications for the UK tax system. Amidst the economic uncertainty, what would be in the interest of British business and the global economy alike? Would cuts to corporate tax rates help competitiveness or undermine stability? How can changes in tax policy serve a wider post-Brexit industrial strategy?
This event is held in partnership with CIPFA and the APPG on Responsible Tax.
‘THE POLICY FACTOR!’ is a talent show-style policy debate that makes the most of audio-visual tools to engage with politicians, policy experts, commentators and audiences both within and beyond the fringe. Each interactive event will explore a positive policy idea for the next Parliament, in the style of an ‘audition’. Responding to the proposal, a ‘judging panel’ will be comprised of individuals representing a variety of views, for example the party, the press, or the people.
The big idea? To find new talent to challenge ‘politics-as-usual’.
