Home Office 'hid failure to hit targets'

PUBLISHED February 22, 2005

MPs criticised the Home Office yesterday for not telling the truth about its failure to meet some of its key performance targets.

The MPs accused the Home Office of concealing the fact that it was failing to meet its "offences brought to justice" target in its 2004 report.
The target is 1.2 million offences brought to justice by 2006. The report said the Home Office was "on course" to meet it, though figures in the same document showed that it was likely to fail.
