BUDGET: Brown aims to ‘lock in stability’

Opening his budget speech, Gordon Brown reported that the economy grew by 3
per cent last year, manufacturing grew by 1.6 per cent and inflation averaged
2.1 per cent.

He predicted that growth this year would be between 2.25 and 2.75 per cent.

The Budget, said Mr Brown, was designed to "lock in" the economic stability
the Government had been focusing on.
