HC Deb 28 March 1984 vol 57 c172W
17. Mr. Thurnham

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will report what progress is being made in developing the system of annual performance reviews in his Department.

Mr. Tebbit

The merged Department now has a single management system, the activities and resource management system. This enables me to set departmental priorities and then examine these against divisions' current use of manpower and finance, and to make changes accordingly. Regular reviews are made of work in hand within the Department's divisions.
