Sir Alan Budd

Put that Sir Alan Budd quit the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) because he wasn’t given the independence he expected, the PMS said that that was not true; Sir Alan Budd was originally appointed for a fixed-term and as such was only ever going to hold his position for a limited amount of time.

Put that the OBR should not be situated in the Treasury, the PMS said that the OBR had been established on an interim basis in order to add transparency and independent scrutiny of the forecast on which the Budget was based. There would be a bill soon to establish the OBR on a statutory footing.
