Parliament’s spending watchdog has been urged to audit departmental and
Treasury claims that efficiency savings
are being achieved without cuts in service levels, a Commons Treasury Select
In a report on plans for spending, the cross-party committee of MPs was
sceptical of claims made by government’s Gershon review that the £21bn target
for efficiency savings had been hit.
‘Most investment or implementation costs necessary to achieve the savings’
were excluded from the calculation, the committee said.
It remains unclear as to whether government will count the cost of
implementation for the target of making an extra £30bn savings by 2010.
