To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his Department's strategy for managing capital investment and assets by his Department; and if he will make a statement. 704W
§ Mr. Straw
In line with the requirements outlined in the Economic and Fiscal Strategy Report, the Home Office now has a comprehensive strategy for capital investment and asset management.
The strategy covers both the Home Office's approach to future capital investment and the efficient use of existing assets. The strategy provides a framework for longer term plans to be built upon. It is the first such investment strategy for the Home Office. The Department intends to publish an updated strategy each year.
A copy of the strategy has been placed in the Library and on the Home Office website. Additional copies are available from the Home Office Press Office. The published document include the Capital Investment Strategy of the Charity Commission, which has also been placed in the Library.
