The budgets for the Security Service, SIS and GCHQ form the Single Intelligence Account (SIA) which is voted by Parliament as a consolidated allocation. It has been the policy of successive Governments not to reveal details of the individual Agency budgets beyond what is already published. Most recently the overall SIA budget details can be found at paragraphs 39 and 41 of the Intelligence and Security Committee's (ISC) 2010-11 Annual Report which was published on 13 July 2011 (Cm 8114).
