Sir Richard Ottaway, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, has said that the Foreign Office is not on track to cut the number of UK-based staff by 10% by the original target of 2015.
It's actually had to increase staff in order to cope with policy demands, and it's not on track to meet its target of a 10% headcount reduction in UK-based staff by 2015.
What we're saying is: be realistic, live within your means, and make sure that priorities are clearly defined.
But MPs concluded that it was on course to make savings totalling approximately £170 million over the Spending Review period to 2014/15.
