Budget documents

With the recent annoucement of the UK budget it is timely to remind researchers of the strengths of the Institute of Commonwealth Studies collections of non-UK government publications generally, and budget publications specifically.

The Library collects budget and budget related documents across the Commonwealth, and these include budget speeches; financial statements; background documents; supplementary documents; discussion papers; responses to budgets from opposition parties, trade unions and NGOs; analyses of budgets.

Within the Library collections is also a growing literature on gender budgeting - integrating consideration of the impacts on women of national budgetary processes.
