Volume 711: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism in the Home Office is planning any savings in line with the £35 billion 2007 Comprehensive Spending Review target. [HL3724]

The Home Office and the police service have a target to achieve value for money improvements worth £1,694 million per annum by March 2011 compared with during 2008-09; that includes saving a cash reduction in Home Office expenditure of £150 million as the department's contribution to the Government's programme to secure £5 billion savings in public expenditure by 2010-11.

Alongside other parts of the department and government, the Office of Security and Counter Terrorism and the police service will play a full part in maximising value for money in public expenditure. Performance is reported in my department's annual report.
