Opposition Day — Report on Impact of Spending Review Options on Productivity — 17 Jun 2015 at 18:49
The majority of MPs voted against requiring a report from the Office for Budget Responsibility on the impact on productivity of the options likely to be considered in the forthcoming Spending Review.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- notes that UK economic productivity has been stagnating for several years with productivity growth the second worst of the G7 countries;
- recognises that supporting business to improve output efficiency and enhanced productivity is the best route to higher living standards and in turn is crucial for the health of the public finances;
- regrets that the Chancellor failed to address productivity in his March Budget speech;
- urges the Government to ask the Office for Budget Responsibility to report on the impact on productivity of the options likely to be considered in the forthcoming Spending Review; and
- believes that decisions on reducing public service expenditure must take into account their impact on productivity performance.
