Coalition to rush through £6bn of cuts and give up power to forecast growth
"Almost £6bn of spending cuts will be rushed out next Monday as the Government begins its attempts to reduce Britain's record peacetime public deficit of £163bn this year.
"David Laws, the Liberal Democrat who is Chief Treasury Secretary, is sharpening the axe even though his party opposed immediate cuts during the election campaign. His "hit list" is expected to include curbs on recruitment; the use of consultants; scaling back quangos; doubling the expected savings on IT projects; scrapping "wasteful projects" like identity cards; cutting the bills from 70 major suppliers; lower property costs and squeezing advertising budgets."
