Treasury announcement

Put that the former Chancellor had said that there was no substance in the document and it was nothing new, the PMS said that the document was being published at the end of the debate, so people would need to wait for it to be published.

The PMS said that it was new in the sense that it was setting out the details of the spending review and in particular the degree to which the Government was going to consult on the details of that.

Asked if the Government would be consulting on ring-fenced areas such as the NHS, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had been clear that all areas of Government should be looking for greater efficiencies and all areas would be looked at when thinking of ways to do things differently.

Put that the consultation did not exclude those ring-fenced areas, the PMS said that the precise parameters of the consultation would need to be set out by the Treasury, but the intention was to inform the process of allocating resources to departments and thinking about how to deliver services.
