At the Trades Union Congress, the Prime Minister planned to use freely the C-word that until today was outlawed from the Labour lexicon. But Tory claims that the PM would perform a humiliating U-turn and admit a need for deep spending reductions have not been realised. Instead Mr Brown decided to cut low-priority budgets and waste -- and is planning a major attack on the Conservatives, who he said would slash frontline public services. Labour will cut costs, cut inefficiencies, cut unnecessary programmes and cut low-priority budgets, Mr Brown was due to say, according to a draft of his speech. But when our plans are published, people will see that Labour will not support cuts in the vital frontline services on which people depend. Mr Brown wanted to symbolise his determination to reduce costs while avoiding areas such as health and education. He will save 500m over three years by abandoning whitehalls early exit programme for top civil servants. officials say the scheme, which lets mandarins quit in their fifties, often costs up to six times as much as simply paying their salaries until they retire at the standard whitehall age of 60. Brown: making priorities Businessesfearpaternityleavenightmare PLEASE RECYCLE YOUR COPY OF LITE RESPONSIBLY PSIX passengers were injured, two requiring hospital treatment, when two buses collided in Tottenham High road today.

Aftermath: the damaged buses which crashed in Tottenham High Road today Bus smash injures six Inflationhits five-yearlowPInfLATIon slid to its lowest level in almost five years during August, official figures showed today. The Consumer Prices Index fell from 1.8 per cent to 1.6 per cent during the month. It was last lower in november 2004. Unchanged household energy bills this year compared with big hikes 12 months earlier dragged down the inflation rate, as did falling food prices. PBUSInESS chiefs today condemned plans to give fathers up to six months paternity leave. The move will be welcomed by unions but they will be angered by the shelving of a Labour manifesto aim to extend maternity pay from nine months to a year. Currently, fathers can take up to two weeks paid paternity leave. But under the reforms, about 400,000 men a year will be eligible for up to six months off after the birth of a child, from April 2011, including three months paid. Mothers can take a years maternity leave, including nine months paid. Under the proposals, if they returned to work after six months, the remaining six could be allocated to the father. Business leaders criticised the plan. david frost, director general of the British Chambers of Commerce, said: There is no guarantee that businesses are going to be back to full health by 2011. This is going to be an administrative nightmare for businesses. Its going to be a huge diversion for companies when they can least afford it.Year off: mothers If you do that youre finished, not only as a political force, but as a human being Union chief BRendAn BARBeR warns Gordon Brown not to cUt pUBlic services the transformers film crew hit Back at MegAn Fox, left, in an open letter on the internet after she compared the director to adolf hitler Thankless, classless and graceless dISTRIBUTIon HeLPLIne: If you have any comments about the distribution of London Lite, ring 020 7651 5276, or email distribution@thelondonlite.co.uk On the Tube JOURNEY PLANNER For the easiest way to get around London visit tfl.gov. uk and click on Journey Planner London travel information call 020 7222 1234 24-hours Textphone 020 7918 3015 Travel alerts receive free real-time travel info on your mobile or email, subscribe at tfl.gov. uk/travelalerts for more information on oyster, visit oystercard.com LU Customer services for inquiries, call 0845 330 9880 between 8am and 8pm daily Congestion charging for payment details call 0845 900 1234 or visit cclondon. com London Travelwatch call 020 7505 9000 or visit londontravel watch.org.uk Roadwatch Redcliffe gardens, West Brompton: lane closed between fawcett st and fulham road.
