The article offers a discussion on the spending review events (SRE) in Great Britain. These sessions are being held to allow people raise their suggestions and share their knowledge and experience in key policy areas with the Chief Secretary and Her Majesty's (HM) Treasury officials. The key topics tackled in the SRE to ensure that the Government has value for money in all of its public spending involve activities that meet Government priorities, Government activities that have substantial economic value, and the effectiveness of public service activities. The talk of the Right Honourable Danny Alexander about the SRE and how the Government spends the collected tax is included.
