Administration and expenditure of the Chancellor’s Departments, 2008-09


In examining the administration and expenditure of the Chancellor’s Departments in 2008–09, the Sub-Committee chose to concentrate on HM Treasury, HMRC, the Debt Management Office (DMO), National Savings and Investments (NS&I), and the Royal Mint. As part of the inquiry, the Sub-Committee took oral evidence from officials from each of these bodies.

The Sub-Committee also obtained written evidence on progress against a number of significant current issues from the Government Actuary’s Department (GAD), Office of Government Commerce (OGC) and the Valuation Office Agency (VOA), though they are not the primary focus of the Report.
