HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 c522W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister which of the services of his Department have not been reviewed under the Better Quality Services Initiative; and when they will be reviewed. [50314]

Mr. Leslie

Since the implementation in October 1999 of the BQS initiative (a five-year rolling programme) the Cabinet Office has reviewed approximately 50 per cent by value of its pre-2001 Election units/functions.

Following the Election the Cabinet Office has undergone a significant restructuring. The timing and nature of future BQS reviews of Cabinet Office functions/services will be considered in the light of these changes and the outcome of the current Spending Review.
