HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 cc823-4W
Mr. Mullin

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills how many performance targets she has set for her Department; and how many that were set for last year have been dropped this year. [64273]

Mr. Miliband

The Department's performance targets are set out in Public Service Agreements (PSA) agreed as part of Spending Reviews and are published in Spending Review White Papers, available from the House of Commons Library; or from the Treasury website at www.hm-treasury.gov.uk. The most recent targets were agreed as part of the Spending Review 2000; we have not dropped any of these. However, employment related targets transferred to the Department for Work and Pensions following machinery of government changes after the last general election.

Performance against our PSAs and other high level supporting targets is published in our departmental annual report, available from the House of Commons library or via our website, www.dfes.gov.uk.
