The Autumn Statement was announced by the Chancellor on Wednesday 5 December laying out changes to economic forecasts and budget proposals for 2013/14 and 2014/15.

The statement had good news and bad news for local government, with some protection for 2013/14 but further cuts in 2014/15.

Local government has welcomed some of the measures on growth and infrastructure investment but warned that further cuts to local government budgets could undermine this.

This briefing provides details of the statement which are of most relevance to local government and comments on the implications for local authorities and their communities.
