The following tables set out spend that has received approval from the Efficiency and Reform Group in Cabinet Office between June and November 2010.


  1. The Olympics programme is excluded from the moratoria.
  2. Advertising and Marketing - Museums, Galleries, Heritage Bodies, Lottery Bodies, and Tourism bodies were not required to seek approval for spend that was deemed necessary to raising private funds or operating in line with their key responsibilities.
  3. Recruitment - no reporting on recruitment has been provided. The decision on recruitment was delegated to the Chief Executives of our arm’s length bodies. They were requested only to approve appointments identified as business critical and that could not be filled by an existing public servant.
