Select Committee on Public Accounts Eleventh Report

Letter from HM Treasury to the Secretary of the Commission

NAO CORPORATE PLAN 2003-04 TO 2005-06

  Michael Whitehouse has sent me a copy of the NAO Corporate Plan and invited me to submit Treasury comments to the Commission.

  I note the increases in resource expenditure in 2003-04 and 2004-05 over the provision recorded in last year's Corporate Plan and that under both scenarios expenditure is expected to grow at a rate of 6 per cent over the period 2003-04 to 2005-06. We hope that the NAO will do all they can to contain future cost increases.

  I am copying this letter to Michael Whitehouse at the National Audit Office.
