Northern Ireland Office: Efficiency Initiatives

Volume 714: debated on Thursday 12 November 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what was the corporate file plan to manage parliamentary Questions in the list of efficiency initiatives identified by the Northern Ireland Office as part of the 2004 Comprehensive Spending Review; and how much has been saved as a result each year. [HL6279]

This initiative reflects savings in staff time across the Northern Ireland Office as a result of introducing a more efficient IT-based system for managing the parliamentary Questions process using the department’s corporate file plan. This has generated recurring savings of £64,000 per annum since 2005-06.
