§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the functions of his Department that have been(a) market tested and (b) outsourced in each of the last five years, specifying the (i) money saving and (ii) percentage saving in each case. 
§ Beverley Hughes
The available information on Home Office functions that have been market tested and 111W outsourced in each of the last five years specifying the money and percentage saving in each case is as follows:
Function Year Monetary saving (£) Percentage saving Prison management 2000–01 4.5 million 18 Prison shop 2000–01 1 million 27 Security guarding services 1997 1380,000 18.8 1 Figures at net present value (NPV) over three years.
The calculation of net present value is intended to express all future cash flows associated with a procurement in their present day values.
I am sure the savings for the taxpayer occurred by this will be welcomed by the hon. Member.
