Examination of Witnesses (Questions 60-62)|
21 NOVEMBER 2007
Q60 Chairman: There is a billion
pounds attached to the TSB over the next three years, additional
resources into the RDAs, are there any other costs for the implementation
of this Review that you think should have been made or are there
sufficient resources in the pot to be able to deliver?
Lord Sainsbury of Turville: One
always would like more money but if you look at it in terms of
what we manage to get in terms of the Comprehensive Spending Review
compared to a lot of others areas of government expense, I think
this does show there is real support in government for this area.
I do not know if there is any area where I think we are asking
people to do impossible things with the amount of money they have
got. On the contrary, I think there is huge scope by doing things
better to get a better result with the small amount of extra money
we have got.
Q61 Chairman: An excellent report
which is going to be fully implemented, there are no cost problems
and, therefore, this should be a success.
Lord Sainsbury of Turville: Yes.
Q62 Chairman: On that positive note,
thank you very much.
Lord Sainsbury of Turville: I
will miss, in my future life, coming before this Committee. I
found we are on the same side and it was always a very enjoyable
