To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs with reference to page 61, paragraph 15.6 of the 2009 Value for Money Update, which activities (a) in the UK and (b) overseas have been designated as lower priority activities; and what estimate his Department has made of the savings to be made in respect of each such activity by 2010-11. (277489)

A full breakdown of all allocative efficiencies (the reassignment of resources from lower to higher priority areas) achieved for 2008-09 and forecasts for 2009-10 and 2010-11 are scheduled to be published in our 2009 departmental report next month. The report will be available in hard copy and on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website. A copy of the report will be placed in the Library of the House.
