Budget 2001[QQ] Chancellor Gordon Brown last week revealed his Budget day would be a Wednesday. Brown had been widely tipped to make his fifth Budget address on Tuesday 6 March. But, just as with his first Budget, he has opted for the Wednesday.
AccountancyAge.com has already begun its Budget 2001 coverage with a dedicated area of links, resources and news. This section of the site will continue to grow right up to the moment Brown stands up.
The website will then be updated throughout the chancellor’s statement and will provide instant analysis and comment from leading figures from the accounting profession.
