for anyone remotely interested, the ODPM now admit London's costs are £76 per incident and not the figure they have been using with MPs: £18 to £22 per incident (they blame this on CIPFA).  This was critical in swaying some MPs on the "efficiency" argument.  Some controls now claim their own control costs are £55 per incident, the target figure for the new controls!

and should we be surprised that the claims previously made were not truthful?

so it may be that there are NO cost savings to be made and the ODPM have been lying to parliament? please tell me im only dreaming and they would never have done such a thing?

Davey, It seems to me that you need an independent consultant to go through the figures for you. One with a scottish o grade in statistics and with an experiment statistics module in his  (OR HER) degree course and that would do a special discount for the bruvvers. If you want I could rack my brains hard to think of someone suitable.......
