Volume 493: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department with reference to paragraph 9.09 of the UK's Strategy for Countering International Terrorism, published in March 2009, what the cost of the key deliverables in the Prevent Delivery Plan (a) has been in each year since 2003 and (b) is expected to be in 2009-10. (277359)

Prior to 2008-09 the Home Office did not collate financial data on the cost of key deliverables in the Prevent Delivery Plan.

The cost of Prevent key deliverables during 2008-09 was estimated at £157 million. This is an estimate which was provided at the beginning of the financial year, and may not reflect actual spend. The delivery plan only contains the estimated cost of key deliverables and does not represent total spending on Prevent.

The key deliverables for 2009-10 are still in development, with spend currently estimated at £81 million.
