Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung is to present his first Budget in one go rather than following the long-standing practice of delivering spending and revenue measures on two separate days. A government spokesman yesterday said all Budget details would be tabled to Legco on March 6. In the past, the expenditure component of the Budget has been outlined to Legco on the Friday before Budget day - which is traditionally on a Wednesday in early March. The Finance Bureau said the move was aimed at helping lawmakers and the public to better understand the Budget. 'In the past we have received comments that they could not fully appreciate the situation when only the expenditure is presented on a Friday,' said a bureau spokesman. 'The expenditure and revenue are indeed related. We hope this year we will be able to give a full picture in one go,' she said. The Government still plans to make public two reports on the deficit studies and the measures to broaden the tax base later this month. The change, the spokeswoman said, would not affect Legco's schedule of scrutinising the economic blueprint. Chan Kam-lam, of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong, welcomed it as a 'practical measure'. 'In the past we only saw the expenditure but not the income side of the story, so all the comments people made on the estimates would be unrealistic.'
