Fresh from last year's Conservative election victory, newly appointed Chancellor Rishi Sunak will deliver the government's first Budget on 11 March. Join the New Statesman the following morning for a breakfast discussion examining the UK's first Budget for 47 years as a non-EU member.

Will Sunak announce radical tax and spending changes only a month into his Chancellorship? Will uncertainty over a future European trade deal hinder growth forecasts? Will the Conservatives significantly increase investment as they seek to retain former Labour voters? And will taxes be cut as the Tories bask in their largest parliamentary majority since 1987?

Join the New Statesman's Political Editor Stephen Bush, Britain Editor Anoosh Chakelian and Senior Online Editor George Eaton to dissect the political, economic and social affairs implications of the Budget for the UK.

Breakfast and Registration: 8:00 | Budget Event: 8:30-9:30

Venue: Westminster, TBC
