Details

2015 - The budget breakdown can be found under PESA- Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses . However, it is not clear if one can see budget breakdown for sub-departments. Moreover, it was hard to find the dataset, and it was not available on data.gov.uk, but on the gov.uk website. In addition, there was no link from the treasury webpage to this dataset.

All the data is one place, but it would be better if it was in one spreadsheet.

The budget book can be find under the name Main Supply Estimates 2015 to 2016, and it is not publish in a Machine readable format, nor it does not linked from the treasury website.

Reviewer comments
