Statement made on 25 June 2019

Statement UIN HLWS1613


My honourable friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Jesse Norman) has today made the following written ministerial statement

The government will introduce the Finance Bill following the next Budget.

In line with the approach to tax policy making set out in the government’s documents ‘Tax Policy Making: a new approach’, published in 2010, and ‘The new Budget timetable and the tax policy making process’, published in 2017, the government is committed, where possible, to publishing most tax legislation in draft for technical consultation before the legislation is laid before Parliament.

The government will publish draft clauses for the next Finance Bill, which will largely cover pre-announced policy changes, on Thursday 11 July 2019 along with accompanying explanatory notes, tax information and impact notes, responses to consultations and other supporting documents. All publications will be available on the website.
