Kerslake Review Final Report

A REVIEW OF THE ROLE OF THE TREASURY IN DELIVERING FAIR AND SUSTAINED ECONOMIC GROWTH AND PROSPERITY

This independent review looks in to the current role, responsibilities and operating mandate of Her Majesty’s Treasury.

The Treasury is a uniquely powerful government department, making the major spending decisions for the whole of the British state, while directing and overseeing plans for the country’s economy.

The aim of this review, which has been commissioned by the Shadow Chancellor, is to bring together evidence on whether the current role and structures of the Treasury is appropriate for the task of promoting and managing sustainable growth in a fairer and more equal society, and to make recommendations.

It is led by Lord Bob Kerslake and made up of a panel of independent experts from a wide range of backgrounds with experience of the Treasury, academia, the public and private sectors.  The panel is supported by an advisory panel, who bring expertise in a number of areas including, economics, constitutional affairs and public impact.
