To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what the estimated level of saving to the Department is from the use of market testing in 2002–03. [107757]

We have not undertaken any market testing programmes during 2002–03. Departments are no longer required to undertake a programme of market testing. They are, however, required to ensure that high quality public services are delivered on the basis of value for money in line with the Better Quality Services ethos.
