Asked what the Government had decided to do about quangos, the PMS said that the Chief Secretary would lead a review of all quangos and this would inform decisions in the run-up to the Pre Budget Report (PBR).

Asked if some of them would go, the PMS said that we were going to lead a review of quangos. We would not pre-judge what the outcome of the review would be. The Treasury had been looking at where we could make savings and in the Budget we announced an extra 9 billion of savings in the next three-year spending review. The Treasury had also been looking at crosscutting departmental budgets to look at where delivery overlapped.

Asked if the figure of 9 billion was on top of the 35 billion of savings also announced, the PMS said that as part of the committed value for money agenda, which was 35 billion of savings in this Comprehensive Spending Review period, there would be an extra 5 billion for next year. The Budget announced an extra 9 billion of savings in the next three-year spending review through the Operational Efficiency Plan.
