Brown's £20bn business boost plan flawed says NAO

Prime minister's plans to fuel productivity by £16bn by cutting the administrative burden on businesses by £4bn 'overcooked'

A senior NAO figure has warned that Gordon Brown’s ambitious plans to raise
business productivity by £16bn are ‘overcooked.’

The prime minister has proposed a major overhaul which would lift the
administrative burden on UK companies by £4bn and lead to increase productivity
of £16bn, but his calculations have been called into question.

In an interview with
the
Financial Times
Ed Humpherson, an assistant auditor general of the
National Audit Office said:’The £16bn figure is probably a bit overcooked,’ he
said. ‘It’s an extremely difficult assertion to make.’
