The pre-Budget report could be delivered as early as next week if prime
minister Gordon Brown decides to call a snap election for November.

Tax experts and accounting firms had anticipated that chancellor Alistair
Darling would deliver his pre-Budget report on October 17, but the profession is
now preparing for a PBR statement and the comprehensive spending review next
week.

Brown has taken a substantial lead over the Conservatives according to
various polls. Should an early election be called, as expected, the PBR is
likely to be held before a poll.
