Police Interpreters

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what account is taken of changes in expenditure relating to police interpreters in assessing spending requirements for the Home Office. (113102)

The Home Office's spending requirements are assessed as part of the spending review process. Budget 2006 announced an early spending settlement for the Home Office which maintains the Home Office's 2007-08 departmental expenditure limit in real terms over the years 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11. This settlement takes into account the Department's and the police service's pressures, priorities and potential savings.
