Cabinet Office funding to be cut again by at least 8 per cent in 2015 - 28 May 2013

The Cabinet Office is one of the first seven Whitehall departments to have agreed further budget cuts of 8 to 10 per cent with the Chancellor of the Exchequer ahead of next month’s spending review.

Other departments that have already agreed to cuts which are likely to have a big impact on civil society service providers are the Ministry of Justice and the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The other departments which have agreed to cuts of between 8 and 10 per cent are the Department for Energy and Climate Change, HM Treasury, the Foreign Office and the Northern Ireland Office.

Health, education and foreign aid will be exempt from cuts and no further reductions are planned to the welfare budget. Negotiations are ongoing with the other departments including the Home Office and Ministry of Defence.
