Description : This report acknowledges that deciding the right time for fiscal consolidation requires making a fine judgement about the resilience of the recovery. It emphasises that a plan to restore the health of the public finances must deal with the structural deficit. While the Treasury aims to cut the deficit from 9% of GDP to 3.6% of GDP in four years, the expert witnesses who examined it all criticised the document for not providing enough information about how this will be achieved. Future Budgets and PBRs should attempt to quantify the downside risks around the structural deficit forecast. There will be uncertainty in these figures, but they are produced as part of the Spending Review process so there appears to be no argument against their publication. Similarly the Bank of England publishes forecasts showing the possible range of inflation rates and publishing information about debt interest on a similar basis would be useful. The recession appears to have had substantially less impact on the labour market than might have been feared, though concern remains about the level of youth unemployment. Repossessions have been far lower than expected however it is recommended that the Treasury proceeds cautiously over the timing of removal of Government support in this area. We do not want to see a return to the times of easy credit, but the Government needs to remain aware of the risk that lending will not support renewed private sector growth as the public sector retrenches. The purpose of the tax on bank bonuses is to change behaviour so that banks increase their capital, rather than providing large discretionary payments to employees. The next Parliament needs to examine the effectiveness of any regime introduced by the Financial Services Bill, in terms both of its success in altering bank behaviour, and of its effect on the competitiveness of the UK financial sector

Description : The 2009 Pre-Budget Report (Cm. 7747, ISBN 9780101774727), Securing the recovery: growth and opportunity, presents updated assessments and forecasts of the economy and public finances and reports on how, in the face of the downturn, the Government is delivering support to the economy, businesses and households to secure the recovery and provide a platform for growth and opportunity. Announcements in the Pre-Budget include: support for business and growth, including extending empty property relief and the Enterprise Finance Guarantee and deferring the increase in the Small Companies rate for another year; support for low carbon growth, through doubling from two to four for the UK's commitment to fund carbon capture and storage demonstration projects, including increasing support for low carbon vehicles; support for individuals, so that 18-24's claiming Jobseekers Allowances for 6 months will be guaranteed a job, work placement or work-related skills training.The Pre-Budget also announces that a temporary payroll tax for 50% will apply to discretionary bonuses above £25,000 for individual employees. There will also be an increase of 0.5% in the employee, employers and self-employed rates of national insurance contributions from April 2011; a freeze in the point at which individuals start to pay the higher rate of income tax in 2012-13; a restriction of pensions tax relief from April 2011. The Pre-Budget also sets out the Government's plans to reduce borrowing by 5.5% of GDP in 2013-14.

Description : The Chancellor of the Exchequer asked the National Audit Office to audit two new assumptions underlying the Treasury's fiscal projections within the 2009 Budget (HC 407, session 2008-09, ISBN 9780102959161). Firstly, to assess if the 2008 Pre-Budget report assumption for the trend rate of growth, allowing for a downward adjustment to the trend output level of around 4 per cent, for the post-2006 period, together with the further downward adjustment at Budget 2009 to the trend output level of around 1 per cent, is reasonable and cautious. Secondly, to examine whether the approach used by the Treasury to produce estimates of the fiscal aggregates adjusted for the effects of the economic cycle is reasonable.

Description : This report examines the forecasts and measures contained in the 2009 Budget (HC 107, session 2008-09, ISBN 9780102959161). The Committee noted that there is considerable uncertainty around the Government's GDP growth forecasts for 2009-2011, reflecting the fact that the UK economy is in uncharted territory. Whilst it is possible that the Government will meet its growth forecasts on the available evidence the Committee considers this an optimistic assumption. They question the decision to assume that the economy will begin registering positive growth as early as the fourth quarter of 2009 and that the economy will register such strong growth in 2011. The Committee's concern is in that the sharp recovery in consumption forecast for 2011 might be too optimistic given that the UK economy will only just have emerged from a sharp downturn. The strong rebound forecast in consumption growth from 2011 onwards has important implications for whether the rebalancing of the UK economy with a shift away from consumption and a rise in the savings ratio, is merely a short-term phenomenon. The Committee notes it is too early to judge whether the November 2008 fiscal stimulus has been successful.The Committee looked at unemployment and considers it too early to judge whether the Government's proposed guarantee of a job, work placement or training scheme for all young people who have been on Jobseekers Allowance for 12 months together with the monetary and fiscal stimuli will be sufficiently timely and substantial response to the unemployment challenge.For public finances the Committee recommends that future budgets and pre-budget reports provide a sectoral analysis of tax revenues so that as the UK economy becomes less dependent on financial services and other sectors become more prominent, the basis of the Treasury's revenue forecasts can be scrutinised. The Committee was concerned over the lack of any substantial measures to combat child poverty. For the housing market the Committee calls for a more stable framework for the payment of Local Housing Allowance and welcome the help announced for homeowners but regret the delays in implementation and lack of clarity in respect of some of the schemes, recommending that clear information is provided. The vehicle scrappage is noted to be of importance to the car industry and that it has been welcomed in some quarters and await the pre-budget 2009 report to assess how effective the scheme has been. The Committee believes there are uncertainties over the yield to be raised by the 50 percent top rate of income tax and recommend that the Treasury should report in the 2011 PBR on the revenue raised both nominally and as a percentage of the theoretical maximum revenue by this new top rate.Regarding tax relief on pensions the Committee notes the departure from the long standing principle that tax relief for pension contributions should be given at an individuals marginal rate tax and urges the Treasury to monitor the effect of this change, keeping under review the possibility that a cap on annual contributions might be a more equitable way of reducing the percentage of tax relief that benefits the highest earners.

Description : The 2008 Pre-Budget Report presents updated assessments and forecasts of the economy and public finances, and reports on how in the face of major global economic shocks the Government intends to support the economy, businesses and households through these uncertain times while delivering its long-term goals. Measures announced include: temporarily reducing the Value Added Tax (VAT) rate to 15 per cent from1 December 2008 to 31 December 2009; bringing forward £3 billion of capital spending from 2010-11 including introducing a green stimulus supporting low carbon growth and jobs; introducing a new additional higher rate of income tax of 45 per cent for those with incomes above £150,000 from April 2011; increasing national insurance contributions by 0.5 per cent from April 2011; increasing alcohol and tobacco duties; a two pence per litre increase in fuel duty from 1 December). Immediate action to help those individuals and businesses most affected by the economic downturn include: increases in the income tax personal allowance; bringing forward the increase in Child Benefit; increases of the Child Tax Credit and a payment of £60 to all pensioners; help through mortgage rescue and Support for Mortgage Interest schemes for eligible homeowners in difficulty and a commitment from major mortgage lenders not to initiate repossession action within at least three months of an owner-occupier going into arrears; an additional £1.3 billion to support for the unemployed to find a new job; measures to help small and medium-sized enterprises facing credit constraints; a new HMRC Business Payment Support Service to allow businesses in temporary financial difficulty to pay their HMRC tax bills on a timetable they can afford; and more generous tax relief for businesses now making losses and the modification of a number of planned tax reforms, including vehicle excise duty, air passenger duty, and the deferral of the increase in the small companies' rate of corporation tax.

Description : The Treasury Committee's report on the Pre-Budget Report 2008 (Cm. 7484, ISBN 9780101748421) considers that the balance of risks to the Treasury's forecast, for a swift recovery in economic growth for 2010 after a significant decline in output in 2009, is on the downside. The report highlights the lack of bank lending as the single most critical problem for the economy in the near term. The overall effect of the fiscal stimulus remains uncertain, the cost of the reduction in VAT is considerable and, in the view of the majority of commentators, the Treasury's analysis of its impact is an optimistic one. The report notes that the risk of a self-reinforcing deflationary cycle exists in the UK economy at present and recommends that the Treasury prepare and publish the actions it may consider taking should a period of "quantitative easing" be needed. While the need for lower interest rates to maintain economic growth is crucial at the present time, the needs of savers must not be forgotten and the Treasury should consider measures that will also support savers at this difficult time. The report notes with concern that the Pre-Budget Report contains no policy measures which will significantly advance meeting the 2010 child poverty target.

Description : Budget 2011 sets out the action the Government will take in three areas: maintaining a strong and stable economy; encouraging growth; and delivering fairness. Chapter 1 outlines how the measures in the Budget advance the Government's long-term goals. Chapter 2 provides a brief description of all Budget policy decisions. The decisions have a neutral impact on the public finances, implementing fiscal consolidation as planned. Growth is forecast to be 1.7 per cent in 2011, but the outlook for the public finances is broadly unchanged. Measures are outlined on: personal tax; corporate taxes; tax measures affecting charities; indirect taxes (tobacco, alcohol, fuel and gambling duties, other transport taxes, landfill, VAT); tax reliefs; anti-avoidance; tax administration and banking. Action to promote growth include (a) creating the most competitive tax system in G20, with reductions in corporation tax, simplification of the tax system, and consultation on integrating the operation of income tax and National Insurance; (b) measures to facilitate and support the starting up of businesses - removal of regulatory burdens, implementing Lord Young's proposals on health and safety, expansion of investment schemes and other financial support, streamlining the planning system, investing in science capital development; (c) encouraging investment and exports through establishing 21 new enterprise zones, extra funding for new rail projects and pothole repair; (d) creation of a more educated, flexible workforce, with additional work experience places and apprenticeships. Fairness is addressed through various tax and pension changes. Appendix A examines the impact on households. A number of supporting documents are published alongside the Budget.

Description : In 2007, financial institutions across the world began to encounter difficulties raising the funds needed to keep their operations going, leading to a crisis of confidence in the banking system. In response, governments have intervened to support the financial system. The complexity of the problems across the financial sector and the speed with which events unfolded presented the Treasury and the other Tripartite Authorities with a formidable challenge. There have been no disorderly failures of UK banks, and no retail depositor in a bank operating in the UK has lost money. To date a range of indicators, including benchmark interest rates for wholesale funding, bank share prices and the perceived risk of defaults, have stabilised and improved. But the scale of the support required from the UK taxpayer to maintain financial stability, totalling around £850 billion, has been truly staggering. In responding to the crisis the Treasury was heavily reliant on the use of external advisers, and the terms allowed for the potential payment of success fees in situations where no success criteria were specified, a practice wholly inappropriate in the public sector. Lending to business, vital to the recovery of the economy, is falling short of legally-binding commitments entered into by two of the banks that received the most support: the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and Lloyds Banking Group. The priority now is to get the best value for the taxpayer from the huge sums of public money invested in the banks.

Description : The Government's objective is to build a strong economy and a fair society, in which there is opportunity and security for all. The 2007 Pre-Budget Report and Comprehensive Spending Review, 'Meeting the aspirations of the British People' (Cm 7227), presents updated assessments and forecasts of the economy and public finances, describes reforms that the Government is making and sets out the Government's priorities and spending plans for the years 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11, including: maintaining macroeconomic stability; investing in the future with total public spending rising from £589bn in 2007-08 to £678bn in 2010-11 including an additional £2bn for capital investment in public services; continuing the sustained investment in the NHS, with resources rising from £90bn in 2007-08 to £110bn by 2010-11 and with value for money savings of at least £8.2bn contributing to the funding of the conclusions of the Darzi Review 'Our NHS, our future'; further sustained increases in resources for education, science, transport, housing, child poverty, security and international poverty reduction and the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games; simplifying the tax system to make it fairer, simpler and more efficient; modernising the tax system through major reforms to inheritance tax and capital gains tax; steps to protect the environment, including reforms of the tax regime for aviation and a new Environmental Taxation Fund to support the demonstration and deployment of new energy and efficiency technologies.

Description : In this paper the Government sets out its preferred scheme design for public service pensions. It is built on the foundations laid by Lord Hutton in his report (Independent Public Service Pensions Commission: final report, 2011, ISBN 9780108510410). The cost of public service pensions paid out has risen by over a third over the last ten years to £32 billion a year. Reforms to date have been insufficient to reverse the increase in costs of public service schemes from rising longevity. The Government's offer is: benefits already earned are protected; for those in final salary schemes, those past benefits will be linked to their final salary when they leave the scheme or retire; public service workers with ten years or less to their current pension age, will see no change in when they can retire; Government will continue to pay more overall toward pension benefits than the workforce. The scheme design will ensure: guaranteed, index-linked pension benefits on retirement; an accrual rate of 1/60ths and earnings indexation for benefits while still working in the public service; fairer distribution of benefits across the workforce; and, that most low and middle earners working a full career will receive pension benefits at least as good as they get now. But in return, the Government is asking public service workers to pay more towards their pensions and work a bit longer. The Government's offer is conditional on the trades unions and the Government reaching agreement on the reforms.

The Presbyterian Mutual Society (PMS), a Northern Ireland Industrial and Provident Society (IPS), was subjected to a run on its deposits in October 2008, which resulted in its entering administration. The estimated realisation value of its assets is significantly less than its liabilities. There is some prospect of recovering members' money if the administration is allowed to run for a long time, but that would continue to mean that members of the Society, who might have pressing needs, would not have access to their funds. Moreover, there is legal uncertainty as to whether shareholding members of the Society are entitled to the return of any of their funds until those who have made loans to the Society are repaid. The PMS was not regulated by the FSA, nor was it part of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Its members have no legal entitlement to reimbursement. The Committee states that in future a system should exist that deposits were made at the depositors' own risk, and there was no question of government assistance. Further that the directors of the Society should be responsible, not the government or the regulator. Also that the taxpayer should not have to stand behind financial institutions as a general rule. The Committee sets out 18 conclusions and recommendations.
