Brown Says U.K. Deficit Plans Go Further Than Other Countries
April 12 (Bloomberg) — Prime Minister Gordon Brown said his plans to reduce the deficit show his Labour Party has “done more than any other country” on the public finances.
He said the government would achieve 11 billion pounds in efficiency savings, and savings of 4 billion pounds from public-sector pay and pensions. He spoke at an event in Birmingham to introduce the party’s election manifesto.
Brown also said Labour would not make a pledge on increases in value-added tax, and his deficit reduction plans do not depend on such an increase.
