§ Mr. Tim Smith
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what specific financial, efficiency and quality of service targets he has approved for the vehicle inspectorate agency for the current year and for the longer term,
§ Mr. Atkins
When the Vehicle Inspectorate became an executive agency on 1 August 1988 it was set a key performance target to improve the cost efficiency of its 43W main activities by 3.7 per cent. over a two-year period from 1 April 1989. Full details of the inspectorate's 1989–90 financial performance and service targets are given in its business plan, a copy of which is available in the Library of the House. The targets for 1990–91 will be included in the next business plan, which should be available shortly. A copy of that plan will also be lodged with the Library.
