Treasury select committee to issue criticism of Brown's manipulation of the Golden Rule

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.
