Will UK’s new state aid regime be a (rare) Brexit success? (Institute for Government)

12 January 2022, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Online panel discussion hosted by the Institute for Government

The government’s subsidy control bill sets out how the UK will replace EU state aid rules but will this deliver a post-Brexit dividend, and how will the UK’s system change how subsidies are offered?

While leaving the EU allows the UK’s system to focus domestic concerns and government priorities like reaching net zero, a poorly designed system could mean poor regulation of subsidies and creating legal uncertainty.

Will the new system provide the additional flexibility, freedom and certainty that the government has promised – or is it a recipe for confusion? And as the legislation is scrutinized in parliament, how can it be improved to ensure it delivers for UK governments, public bodies and businesses?
