HC Deb 14 July 1995 vol 263 c836W
Mr. Matthew Banks

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how the Central Statistical Office performed against its key targets in 1994–95. [35206]

Mrs. Knight

The Central Statistical Office's performance for 1994–95 is described in the agency's annual report and accounts for 1994–95 which is being laid before the House and published today.

The CSO achieved 27 out of the 33 published targets, including 18 out of 19 targets relating to the quality of key economic statistics.

A number of targets for 1995–96 have been tightened and these are set out in the CSO programme strategies 1995–96 to 1997–98 which was published in April.
