The Chair of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has informed us that the preliminary 2009-10 estates budget for CQC is expected to be £9.7 million, which consists of an operating budget of £8.4 million and £1.3 million allocated in the transitional budget for the phased migration in the first half of 2009-10 out of existing buildings surplus to the Commission's requirements.
