Efficiency in Public Services Review

Volume 489: debated on Friday 20 March 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the cost was of the Gershon Review; and how many civil servants provided support to the review. (265430)

In Annex D of “Releasing resources to the front line, Independent Review of Public Sector Efficiency”, Sir Peter Gershon thanked the 35 members of the Efficiency Review Team, and set out the organisations from which they were loaned or seconded. Given the cross-cutting nature of the review and the number of organisations involved, HM Treasury does not centrally hold figures showing the total cost. Annex D of the report is available online at:
