Spending Review: Home Office agrees spending cuts

The Home Office and five other departments are the latest to reach a deal with George Osborne over spending cuts, the government has confirmed.

The chancellor has already agreed cuts of up to 10% with seven government departments for 2015-6 ahead of his spending review on 26 June.

The latest departments to settle with Mr Osborne and Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander, in addition to the Home Office, are the Department for Rural Affairs, Department for Culture Media and Sport, Scotland, Wales and Law Offices.

Mr Alexander said "good progress" was being made with agreeing settlements with remaining departments.
