§ Lord Moynihan
asked Her Majesty's Government:
In which areas of its modernisation programme Sport England has made savings during the past five years, as reported in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport annual report 2004; and [HL3003]
In which departments administrative savings to the value of £12 million a year have been made through the modernisation of Sport England, as reported in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport autumn performance report in January; and [HL3004]
What is the reason for the difference in administrative savings reported at Sport England in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport autumn performance report in January and the Department's annual report 2004. [HL3005]
§ Lord McIntosh of Haringey
The original estimate that £12 million of savings would accrue from reductions in staffing and back office costs, which appeared in the department's autumn performance report, was revised to £40 million of savings over the next five years in the department's annual report 2004 as a result of a new estimate of staffing and back office savings provided to the department by Sport England in February this year.
