Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne leaves Downing Street in London, December 4, 2012. Osborne will invest 5 billion pounds ($8 billion) in schools, science and transport capital projects, the government said on Tuesday, funded by departmental savings across the next two-and-a-half years. Osborne, struggling to complete a tough austerity programme to bring down British government borrowing, has come under pressure to do more to boost a flagging economy. (REUTERS/Stefan Wermuth
