Not now Darling

  • Comment

The Chancellor, Alistair Darling, has delayed putting £30 billion of PFI assets on the government’s books.

In his first Budget speech, Darling told MPs that planned changes to accounting rules that would have added £30 billion to the government’s balance sheet were being postponed for a year.

He also announced that all new non-domestic buildings will have to be zero-carbon from 2019.
