HC Deb 09 July 2002 vol 388 cc863-4W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what has been the(a) cost and (b) saving from the pursuit of the Department's public service agreement targets in each year since they were introduced. [60889]

Mr. McCartney

The Department's public service agreement sets out the key outcomes it is committed to deliver with the resources provided, and its service delivery agreement sets out the key steps towards delivery of those targets. Each year the Department publishes performance against its targets—including on value for money—and the resources it has used in its departmental report.
