Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Autumn Performance Report

Volume 715: debated on Tuesday 15 December 2009


My right honourable friend the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Ben Bradshaw) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I am pleased to announce the publication of my department’s Autumn Performance Report.

We report strong progress against our Public Service Agreement to deliver a successful and inspirational Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012 that provides for a sustainable legacy and gets more children and young people taking part in high quality PE and sport. That is also one of our departmental strategic objectives.

We are maintaining decent progress against our other departmental strategic objectives—the digital switchover programme is on track and more data is becoming available to assess enjoyment of and excellence in culture, media and sport. I expect to be in a position to report more fully on them next year.

We continue to maintain a strong track record of delivering value for money savings. We have significantly exceeded our Lyons relocation target and maintain good progress towards our Comprehensive Spending Review 2007 value for money target.

A copy of the Autumn Performance Report will be deposited in the House Libraries.
