Women in Tax debate – how should we fund the NHS?

The Chancellor has promised an extra £20bn for the NHS – but how should we fund that? Should the Government raise taxes, and if so which ones?

Our panel, led by Helen Miller of the IFS and with contributions from Anita Charlesworth of the Health Foundation, Rhiannon Kinghall-Were of Macfarlanes and Sophie Lloyd of Travers Smith, will give their views, followed by Q&A.

All are welcome to this event – it is not a women-only space!

Registration from 530pm and the debate will start at 6pm

Thanks to Travers Smith for hosting and for refreshments afterwards https://www.traverssmith.com/
