Information on ongoing and planned research projects and statistical data collections that have been cancelled or curtailed across government since May 2010 is not held centrally. However, I understand that the National Statistician has requested that departments inform her of cessations of statistical outputs and of any consultations around statistical outputs and statistical work programmes and that the UK Statistics Authority are monitoring this.
