HC Deb 23 May 1995 vol 260 cc543-4W
Mrs. Gillan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what targets he has set for the Forensic Science Service agency for 1995–96. [26102]

Mr. Howard

During 1995–96 I expect Forensic Science Service to continue to improve its efficiency and effectiveness. The financial targets for the year are recovery of full economic costs; and a cash unit cost target of £484.91 based on an efficiency gain of 1.98 per cent. The service level targets are to meet 90 per cent. of delivery dates agreed with customers; and to maintain accreditation to national measurement accreditation service and BS5750 standards.
