Richard Hughes gives evidence to the Treasury Select Committee (TSC) for the first time as Chair of the OBR alongside Budget Responsibility Committee (BRC) members Andy King and Prof. Sir Charlie Bean. The TSC raised an inquiry ‘Tax after Coronavirus’ to examine what the major pressures on the tax system are after the economic fallout of the coronavirus crisis. The Committee questioned BRC members about long-term fiscal pressures discussed in this year’s Fiscal sustainability report (FSR) as well as the risks to tax revenues highlighted in last year’s Fiscal risks report.
