The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, will reveal the government’s next round of public spending proposals later today.
Total managed expenditure is forecast to rise over the next 3 years: £695bn in 2012/13, £720bn in 2013/14 and £745bn in 2015/16.
In the next two years all government departments, apart from the Department of Health and the Department for Education, will face further reductions in spending of £1bn in 2013/14 and £1.2bn in 2014/15.
BBC Two will broadcast a special programme to cover the Chancellor’s statement, as well as Prime Minister’s Questions.
Andrew Neil will front the live coverage – which starts at 11.30am on BBC Two – with expert analysis by Nick Robinson, Stephanie Flanders and Robert Peston.
The BBC News Channel and Sky News will also have extensive coverage of the Spending Review.
Sky News will broadcast two editions of Jeff Randall Live. The first at 9am, the second in its normal time slot of 7pm.
The statement is due at 12.30pm, after PMQs.
