Comprehensive Spending Review

Asked if the Prime Minister viewed the delay in the Comprehensive Spending Review as part of the orderly transition he had spoken of previously, the PMOS said he knew that someone would bring this up. The answer was no. The reasons for the delay were, as stated by the Chief Secretary, which was to allow comprehensive review and allow a much more comprehensive way of looking at real savings in departments and so on. We looked forward to the progress report in 2006. Asked about whether the Prime Minister had spoken to the Chancellor about this, the PMOS said that they had discussed the matter and came to an agreed view that this was the best way forward. It would be a joint report between Downing Street and the Treasury.
