§ Mr. Jopling
As part of its work under the financial management initiative, the Ministry is continuing to develop the top management system described in the White Paper "Financial Management in Government Departments" (Cmnd. 9058). I hope in the autumn to make available the 1984 MINIM returns covering programme objectives and resource use.
Further information on my Department's work under the initiative is included in publications by the MPO/ Treasury financial management unit (notably that on budgetary control systems) which are available in the Library and in a further White Paper that the Government hope to publish soon.
