At the start of this century there was a Budget surplus - now there is a deficit. In a recent CRS paper a detailed examination is made of the impact that legislation has had on creating and increasing the deficit.
It is a reminder that it isn't just "the Budget" that requires financial scrutiny - but "ordinary" legislation.
