The Government is today publishing the 2010 Finance Bill. The Bill will enact many of the measures that the Chancellor set out in his Budget statement and represents a key step in delivering strong, sustainable growth to secure the recovery and meeting the commitment to halve the deficit over four years.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Stephen Timms, said:

"The Government has taken unprecedented action to support the economy through the recession.The Finance Bill published today will help to secure the recovery by introducing further targeted support for businesses and households. Following its passage, around half the tax measures we have announced to halve the deficit will have been passed into law."

The Lobby Notes, published today, briefly describe the clauses and schedules in the Bill and can be found on the HM Treasury website.

More detailed Explanatory Notes on clauses are available from Stationery Office bookshops and also on HM Treasury website.

Further details on the Bill will be published on the Parliament website and HM Treasury and HM Revenue & Customs websites as the Bill progresses through Parliament.
