Guardian: Brown plans £50bn sale of national assets The government is to sell off assets including most of the state-owned nuclear industry, the Tote, public spectrum airwaves and Ministry of Defence firing ranges as part of plans which could raise up to £50bn for public spending. Chancellor Gordon Brown said he would consider the sale of the government's 65% stake in atomic generator British Energy even though this £6.5bn holding is amassing cash to pay for future nuclear liabilities.
