My Department has split delivery of its target headcount reductions of 1,100 full-time equivalents between the central department and Her Majesty's Courts Service. The former strand is expected to deliver savings of £9 million in 2007–08 as a result of achieving 300 of the 1,100 full-time equivalent reductions set out in the 2004 Spending Review. These savings count towards the agreed £292 million target described therein. The remaining 800 full-time equivalent reductions are to be delivered by Her Majesty's Courts Service, and the savings from these form part of the £41 million target they will contribute to the overall total by 31 March 2008.
