asked Her Majesty's Government:When they will lay before Parliament the annual report for the Forensic Science Service and if they will list its financial targets for this year.
My right honourable friend the Home Secretary has today laid before Parliament copies of the Forensic Science Service's annual report and accounts for 1992-93. My right honourable friend the then Home Secretary announced in Another Place on 4th May financial and service level targets for the Forensic Science Service for 1993-94 based on a forecast outturn for 1992-93. On the basis of the audited outturn for 1992-93 the unit cost efficiency target has been revised from 1-6 per cent. to 1-8 per cent. The other performance targets remain the same.
