CIPFA launches new advisory commission to examine Brexit risks and opportunities for public services

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) has launched the Brexit Advisory Commission for Public Services, the second of such commissions launched by the institute.

The Brexit Advisory Commission for Public Services will look at how Brexit-related risks can be mitigated and the opportunities to make the sector more flexible, effective and sustainable.

The Commission is expected to release its first analysis later this year. It will be chaired by former MP Julia Goldsworthy and will have the following members:

  • Vicky Pryce, Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) economist
  • Paul Johnson, Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) director
  • Niall Dickson, NHS Confederation CEO
  • Andrew Carter, Centre for Cities deputy director
  • Anna Randle, Collaborate CIC head of public services
  • Cllr Claire Kober, London Councils chair
  • David Bell, University of Stirling professor
  • Gill Payne, National Housing Federation (NHF) director of policy and external affairs
  • Julian McCrae, Institute for Government (IFG) deputy director
  • Kate Kennally Cornwall Council CEO
  • Warwick Lightfoot Policy Exchange director of research
  • Melanie Maxwell-Scott, Business Services Association (BSA) director of policy
  • Marina Wheeler QC

Goldsworthy said: “The legal, fiscal and policy changes that will accompany Brexit must be converted into meaningful opportunities to reform our public services –improving outcomes for the citizens that rely on them and reducing regional disparities. The commission’s role, as set out in today’s mission statement is to help ensure the UK makes the most of these opportunities and mitigates any risks.”
