HC Deb 21 June 1993 vol 227 c6W
Mr. Whittingdale

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish key performance targets for the Building Research Establishment.

Mr. Baldry

The Building Research Establishment is working to the following provisional key targets for 1993–94 in its strategic plan:

  • £96,000 net contribution to the Exchequer.
  • Income to cover full economic costs of a trading basis.
  • Non-Exchequer component to be 10.9 per cent. of total net research commissions.
  • An improvement of 5 per cent. in the unit cost ratio of research output on the target for 1992–93.

The strategic plan is subject to further discussion with my Department. If, as a result, there are any changes to these targets, revised targets will be published.
