Over two days, we brought together 22 members of the public – our citizens’ jury – to talk about the future of the UK tax system and how it could be shaped to better serve the needs of tomorrow.
The jury spent two days debating the purpose of tax, who should pay it and how it should be levied, before presenting their recommendations for reforming the UK tax system.
We commissioned BritainThinks to convene a citizens’ jury as part of our Paying for Tomorrow: Future Tax project to champion discussion on UK tax reform. A citizens’ jury is a robust method of deliberative research, providing participants with time, space and information to consider information in depth before consolidating viewpoints.
BritainThinks recruited 22 members of the British public, broadly representative of the nation’s demographics.
