Please join us for an expert panel discussion on whether the UK’s new subsidy control regime really does give it a competitive advantage.

On 4 January 2023, the Subsidy Control Act (SCA) 2022, entered into full force. THE SCA provided the framework for UK-wide subsidy control so as to – according to the Government – enable public authorities, including devolved administrations and local authorities, to “deliver subsidies tailored to local needs; to support government priorities such as driving economic growth and to reach net zero”.

This new legislation represents one of the most extensive domestic legislative regulatory regimes in terms of control of public spending and raises fundamental questions as far as the role of public authorities, solidarity between devolved regions and central government, enforcement remedies and compliance with the international obligations of the UK.

The panel will include Andrea Biondi, Anneli Howard KC, Aidan Robertson KC and James Webber.
