Volume 497: debated on Thursday 22 October 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Ludlow of 16 September 2009, Official Report, column 2288W, on the Valuation Office Agency: publications, for what reasons the Agency did not meet its minimum target standards in each of the six process areas. (294448)

The external consultants who carried out the high level assessment advised that improvements were necessary in the six process areas to achieve an increasing profile against the target standards.

Publication of more detail in advance of those improvements being completed would represent an unjustified escalation of risk.
