To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Taylor of Holbeach on 11 May (WA 210), why, in the light of their emphasis on the role of the voluntary and community sector, inter alia in the context of the Big Society, they have "no plans to commission further reports" on central government funding of the sector beyond the year 2007-08.

The Government are committed to increasing transparency in all areas of public spending and as such have considered the most efficient way to report on central government spending to the voluntary and community sector.

Going forward, this information will be collated and reported through departmental business plans across central government departments. Initial baseline levels of spend to the sector in 2009-10 are reported in the updated business plans, published in May 2011.
