Scottish Independence: What would it mean for the economy of the North of England?

Event type:
Location: Regency Suite, Assembly Rooms, Fenkle Street, Newcastle NE1 5XU

With the Scottish referendum set to take place later this year, this IPPR North event will explore the economic implications of an independent Scotland on the north of England.

Concern has already been expressed over Scotland potentially being given a competitive advantage over the northern economy. In particular, there is worry about the consequences of tax cuts which could encourage investment and business north of the border.

Speakers at this event include David Bell, professor of economics, University of Stirling, Dr Angus Armstrong from the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and Pat Ritchie, chief executive at Newcastle City Council.
