Independent Safeguarding Authority: Finance

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much his Department has allocated to the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) to cover the operational costs of the ISA’s first year; and if he will make a statement. (294074)

The ISA commenced operations in March 2008. The ISA budget for 2008-09 was £8.201 million.

Due to the phased implementation of the Vetting and Barring Scheme, the full registration requirements of the scheme will not come into force until July 2010, at which point the ISA will be fully operational.
