Departmental Business Plans 2013

Volume 565: debated on Wednesday 26 June 2013

Today the Government published, in a digital format, an updated set of departmental business plans.

Each Department’s business plan sets out:

the Department’s coalition priorities;

the actions each Department will undertake to meet these priorities and the dates when it will implement these actions;

expenditure for each year of the current spending review; and

indicators and other data it will publish on the cost and impact of the public services for which it is responsible.

In particular, the business plans have been updated to reflect:

a new growth priority has been added showing each Department’s contribution to promoting UK growth; and

the commitments made in the coalition Government’s mid-term review.

The business plans can be accessed at,, which also sets out cross-Government priorities and details of departmental input and impact indicators.

A full list of the changes to the structural reform plan and input and impact indicators contained in the business plans is also attached. This list can also be found at,
