Budget07: Brown ploughs £100m into green advice

Chancellor invests in helping small business cut emissions

Gordon Brown announced that he intends to increase spending on advice for
cutting carbon emissions by £100m to £240m.

The advice is aimed at small business and will be channelled through Business
Link offices.

Brown said the move was in recognition of the fact that business accounts for
40% of emissions.

He also announced a cut in the rate relief available for empty offices and
retail space.
