A report published today by PricewaterhouseCoopers says that the chancellor's new public spending plans are far more generous than he has portrayed, allowing an extra£20bn to be spent on education and health over the next three years.

The Times (p25) reports that the authors calculate the government is preparing to spend a total of£23bn more in real terms than former chancellor Kenneth Clarke's final set of plans.

They also conclude that Gordon Brown's plans are even more generous than the amount proposed by unions.
