All eyes will be on Philip Hammond on 22 November for his first Autumn Budget. When announcing the date, the Chancellor described the financial statement as the moment when he will set out the Government’s plans for “raising the taxes that we need over the coming years, and how we intend to spend them to support our public services.” Local government will be desperately hoping the Autumn Budget delivers short- and long-term support for one of our most vital public services: adult social care. There is some cause for cautious optimism. The Chancellor’s Spring Budget delivered an additional £2 billion for adult social care over the period 2017/18 to 2019/20. And, as the experience of the 2017 General Election demonstrated, recognition of the need to secure the immediate and future stability of the service is growing all the time, not least amongst national politicians.
