(Beaconsfield): To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, what specific financial, efficiency and quality of service targets he has approved for the Building Research Establishment for the current year and for the longer term.

My right hon. Friend's statement on 28 March, Official Report, column 238 indicated the heads under which performance targets had been set for the Building Research Establishment for 1990–91. I can give the following figures:

net vote cost£1,764,000
untilisation rate for chargeable staff1 per cent, improvement on previous financial year
non-Exchequer income as a percentage of total income8·4 per cent.
Figures for other targets are commercially sensitive for the agency and will be treated in confidence. Performance targets for the longer term are currently being developed as part of the agency's corporate planning process.
