What is the Pre Budget Report?

On Wednesday 9 Decemeber 2009, Alistair Darling delivers his Pre Budget report.
But what exactly is it?

It's a half time report on how the government is doing meeting its financial commitments.
It should be interesting in a time of decreasing tax revenue, government debt, unemployment and an election within 6 months.

To be continued....!

As it turned out, there were few changes.
A few extra taxes on City fat cats' bonuses & pensions, a bit on national insurance and VAT & stamp duty on house purchases.
For further details see my article for the Swindon Advertiser.
