Public Sector Event

General Election 2019: Separating fact from fiction

Venue: The Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS

Date: 3 Dec 2019

Synopsis: Come and hear the directors of three of the UK’s most trusted and respected independent bodies talk about what has been promised in this election campaign, what challenges will face the new government (whatever its complexion), and where next for Brexit.


Paul Johnson of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, Bronwen Maddox of the Institute for Government and Anand Menon of UK in a Changing Europe will subject the parties’ claims to desperately needed scrutiny, challenging their assumptions and setting out the real priorities for the next parliament.

With plenty of opportunity to address questions to these three leading experts, this will be a unique opportunity to learn more about the choices really facing the country and what the parties’ policies might actually mean.

No politicians, no spin, just experts and you.

Registration and refreshments will be available from 6pm, with the event starting at 6:30. It will finish by 8pm, and will be followed by a drinks reception. If you can't make it in person, we will also be live-streaming here and on social media, and will be taking your questions online.
