Commons committee to rebuke Brown

The Treasury Select Committee is to rebuke the chancellor for his
manipulation of the Golden Rule.

Gordon Brown has changed the measurements for the rule – which specifies that
the government should only borrow to invest over the economic cycle – twice
since the general election, The Times reports.

The attack on the chancellor will come on Wednesday when the committee
reports on its views of the pre-Budget report.
