The Bank of England is coming to Hull and wants to hear from you.
As the UK’s central bank, it’s their job to set policies that work for people all over the United Kingdom.
To help them do that, it’s important that they know what’s going on.
The Citizens’ Panels are a new initiative to help them listen to people’s views.
The first official panel following two trial events last year will be held in Hull, where they will be joined by the Bank’s Chief Economist Andy Haldane.
What do they want to hear about?
They want to hear your experiences of every aspect of the economy. That includes things such as jobs, pay, the cost of living and housing.
They’d also like to hear your views on banks and building societies. For example, what are your experiences of borrowing and saving money?
And they’ll try to answer any questions you’ve got about the Bank of England.
Who can take part?
They’re looking for people from all sorts of backgrounds to join the conversation. You certainly don’t need to be an expert on the economy!
When is it?
The Citizens’ Panel will meet at the Guildhall in Hull on Wednesday, 6 March 2019, from 6-9pm. They’ll provide food and drink and will cover reasonable expenses.
