War spend to top £4bn

Another £500m in Budget for Iraq war

Chancellor Gordon Brown is expected to announce tomorrow that another £500m
will be set aside in the Budget to be used to fund the war in Iraq.

This will bring the total amount spent since the 2003 invasion to £4bn and
will put pressure on the government over spending in other areas such as the
NHS, schools, transport and fighting crime.

The Mirror quotes a senior government source as saying though that
Whitehall’s top priority is to make sure troops are well equipped.

The chancellor will deliver his 10th Budget speech tomorrow.
