Live coverage of the Pre-Budget Report
Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling is due to deliver what could be his last Pre-Budget Report at 12.30pm today (Wednesday).
With the government facing a tough General Election within a matter of months, most pundits are expecting the fight back to start in earnest with the announcements made in the Pre-Budget Report.
Darling could deliver a very political statement to the House of Commons as he attempts to attract voters back to Labour.
Predictions include the removal of higher rate tax relief on pension contributions, freezing the personal allowance for income tax and raising capital gains tax. We also look forward to hearing about plans for a new ‘super tax’ on bonuses for bankers.
