Abolishing the Victims' Advisory Panel will not result in administrative savings. This is because the Panel has not been active since 2009 and no budget has been allocated for it.

In the last three years in which the Victims' Advisory Panel was active the Government spent the following amounts:

£19,116 in 2007-08

£46,940 in 2008-09

£7,101 in 2009-10
