MoJ to see 23% slashed from budget in Govt spending review
The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is to see its budget slashed by more than 20% over four years as the Government today (20 October) announced the outcome of its comprehensive spending review (CSR). The move, part of the most severe programme of public spending cuts since the Second World War, will see the MoJ's budget fall by 23% in real terms over the four-year period of the CSR, dropping from 'baseline spending', stripping out one-off costs, of £8.3bn currently to £7bn by 2014-15.
