CIPFA response: IFS briefing on COVID-19 funding for councils

10-04-2020

In response to recent IFS comments on COVID-19 funding for local councils, Joanne Pitt, Loc‚Äčal Government Policy Manager at CIPFA said: 

“CIPFA recognises and welcomes the additional funding announced by the government at this very difficult time.

“But this IFS analysis raises several valid questions around the allocation of COVID-19 funding, and following local government secretary Robert Jenrick's previous statements, it is important that the sector remains confident it will be fully reimbursed for crisis-related spend.”
