HC Deb 25 March 2003 vol 402 cc7-8WS
The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. David Blunkett)

Technical notes, for the Home Office Public Service Agreement (PSA) targets for the 2002 Spending Review period, have been published today. Copies are available in the Library and online atwww.homeoffice.gov.uk/.

In common with those of other Government departments, the Home Office technical notes define the terms used in the targets, their territorial scope, measurement systems which will be used, and criteria for success. The purpose of the technical notes is to enable Parliament, and the public, to judge progress against the Home Office targets. The measurement systems will be used by the Department, and its partners, to manage delivery of the new, challenging targets.

The Home Office PSA targets were presented to Parliament on 15 July 2002 as part of the Command Paper "2002 Spending Review: Public Service Agreements" (Cm 5571).
