November Update: Financial Services

27 October 2017

Arguably the busiest time of the political year, November sees MPs and peers alike hard at work across a range of policy areas, with legislation and Committee business in full swing, and the return of the traditional Autumn Budget on 22 November.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Theresa May and her party leadership are battling the Brexit stormclouds in a bid to bring reassurance after ominous warnings from business during the party conference season.

Here, Jo Hall, DeHavilland's Monitoring Consultant for Financial Services policy, gives you the lowdown on what to watch out for this November.

What's on the agenda this month

by Jo Hall, Monitoring Consultant

The Chancellor will present the Autumn Budget on 22 November, with the Government expected to go ahead with plans to reduce the deficit, despite September seeing it fall to its lowest level in ten years.

Philip Hammond will face a raft of tricky challenges, not least growing speculation about the prospective impact of Brexit on the UK's economic trajectory, as well as fielding the usual selection of spending requests from campaigners and Parliamentary colleagues.

The Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill will have its Second Reading in the House of Lords this month.

Elsewhere, the Financial Guidance and Claims Bill will continue at Report Stage in the House of Lords.
