star this property answer text <p /> <p>The <em>Youth Justice Board for England &amp; Wales (Amendment of Functions) Order 2014</em> will, subject to Parliamentary approval, assist the Youth Justice Board (YJB) in more efficiently and effectively carrying out its statutory function of overseeing the operation of the youth justice system.</p><p> </p><p>Having considered the additional functions which would be given to the YJB through the Order against the criteria in the Cabinet Office’s <em>Guide to Making Legislation</em>, an impact assessment is not required. The Order would not impose additional costs or reduce existing costs on business or civil society organisations, impose new or remove existing information obligations in respect of the public sector, introduce other administrative burdens or unfunded policy costs, involve some kind of redistribution affecting public, private or civil society organisations, and would not involve regulatory change relevant to the Government’s “one-in, one-out” rule in respect of regulatory burdens. The Government therefore does not intend to publish an impact assessment.</p>

star this property answer text <p>No formal estimate of saving has been done since the Q&amp;A systems inception earlier this year. The main saving to the Department is in its annual contract for receiving the daily TSO feed of parliamentary questions at a cost of £5,000 pa. Other less tangible savings include administrative costs relating to the daily deliver of questions to the House by departmental staff, photocopying, envelopes etc. These savings will also apply with the introduction of the new Written Ministerial Statement System.</p><p>The introduction of the Q&amp;A system has not resulted in any changes to our current IT systems and it is not envisaged that changes will be made in the future unless there are upgrades to the Q&amp;A system that allow us to circulate questions within the department from the system itself.</p><p>One of the benefits of the new system is the possibility for the reporting of the timeliness of answers to Parliamentary Questions to be delivered with greater consistency and accuracy across all answering bodies.</p><p>It will be for the Procedure Committee to evaluate the effectiveness of the new system in improving performance when it assesses the evidence following the end of the session.</p><p> </p>
