Volume 507: debated on Monday 8 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the projected underspend in the National Offender Management Service’s budget is for 2009-10; and if he will make a statement. (312465)

At the end of January 2010, the National Offender Management Service forecast a resource ‘near cash’ year-end underspend of £18 million (0.4 per cent.) of its ‘near cash’ Resource budget of £4,003 million. Of this expected underspend, the majority is forecast to come from the change programme with the balance coming from business as usual activities. ‘Near cash’ resource is principally cash but also includes adjustments for goods and services received but for which invoices have not yet been paid.
