Join us on for up-to-the-minute news and reaction to how Alistair Darling's Budget will affect the UK's motorists.

From 12:30pm on Wednesday, the Chancellor will reveal his Budget to the House of Commons - and will bring you all the detail as it happens.

The most eagerly anticipated announcement will be the Government's decision on the car scrappage scheme, under which car buyers would be given a financial incentive to swap their old vehicle for a new, greener model.

It's hoped that such a scheme, which has been successfully introduced in several European countries, will boost falling car sales and help lower CO2 emissions.

Remember, come back to on Wednesday for all the Budget news, views and reactions.
