In May 2010 HM Treasury wrote to Government Departments to set out spending controls to contribute to the delivery of £6.2 billion savings in 2010-11. These controls also apply to non-departmental public bodies.

No further guidance has been issued to non-departmental public bodies on their expenditure, and no decisions have yet been made about public bodies planned for abolition.
