Public Spending Trends: winners and losers

Total public sector spending has increased substantially since 1997/98 and, especially, since 1999/2000. This is well documented. But what is less well-documented is just how disparate the experience of the departmental “winners and losers” has been (and will continue to be if the current Government’s plans are implemented). This short Perspective seeks to redress the balance.
