Public Expenditure

Question

Asked by Lord Bates

The Financial Services Secretary to the Treasury (Lord Myners): Budget 2010 announced that over £11 billion of savings have now been identified by department for the years from 2012-13. This includes the consultancy, marketing and communications cuts which were identified based on 2008-09 spending levels, currently the most recent financial year that spending levels are available for. The 2008-09 spend is set out in the Public Sector Procurement Expenditure Survey 2009, published alongside Budget.

Red Squirrels

Question

Asked by Baroness Quin

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Lord Davies of Oldham): There is no reliable estimate of the red squirrel population because it is very difficult to carry out an accurate census; therefore no assessment has been made of the numbers of red squirrels in Northumberland.

In the areas where red squirrel populations remain, the densities can vary between 1 and 0.1 squirrels per hectare. Numbers are subject to significant fluctuation depending on environmental factors and breeding success.

Schools: Admissions
