Book now for the full Budget briefing

COMPREHENSIVE analysis of the fleet implications of Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown's Budget can be heard at the Fleet News Budget Briefing next Friday, March 16. The discussions will focus on issues including the further impact of fuel duty changes on fleet operations, the continuing increase in private mileage fuel scale charges and latest thinking on the April 2002 company car tax changes.

An added attraction is that fleet decision-makers will, for the first time, be briefed on the contents of the Work Related Road Safety Task Group's discussion document aimed at finding a formula for cutting at-work road accidents. The report was published last month by the Health and Safety Executive.

The 2001 Budget Briefing at Sopwell House, St Albans, is being sponsored by Avis Rent-a-Car, Kwik-Fit Fleet and Lloyds TSB autolease. Speakers are: Philip Harvey, senior tax adviser to the employee issues group at consultant KPMG; Nigel Stead, managing director of Lloyds TSB autolease; Stewart Whyte, managing director, Fleet Audits and a director of the Association of Car Fleet Operators; Tony Grayling, a senior research fellow in the Institute for Public Policy Research, who will discuss 'green' fleet policies; and Les Philpott, of the HSE and secretary to the task group.

Tickets cost £95 per delegate and bookings can be made by contacting Sandra Evitt at Fleet News on 01733 468123.
