Departmental Standards

Volume 495: debated on Monday 6 July 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer of 24 June 2009, Official Report, column 894W, on Government Departments: standards, whether his Department uses a formula to take performance against public service agreement targets into account in spending reviews. (283468)

No simple formulaic approach is applied during spending reviews. However, a Department’s performance during the previous spending review period is always taken into account when settlements are made.
