Dear Chancellor,

Thank you for your letter about the joint consultation by the UK Statistics Authority and HM Treasury on changes to the Retail Prices Index. As you say, we committed to respond to the consultation this autumn and have agreed that we will do so at the time of the Spending Review on 25 November.

I will be publishing this letter on the Authority’s website.

Yours sincerely,

Sir David Norgrove
