To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government with reference to his Department's press release of 24 March 2010, on operational efficiency, whether the £200 million of efficiency savings announced will be in addition to the £500 million of savings identified in the pre-Budget report.

The £200 million contribution to operational efficiency and Smarter Government savings are in addition to the £500 million announced at 2009 pre-Budget report. The £200 million of savings is my Department's contribution towards £11 billion savings that are being made across Government. The £11 billion of savings will help halve the deficit over four years and protect front-line priorities.
