The total private finance initiative liabilities (PFI) of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for the next 20 years are set out in the table below.

2014/15

2015/16

Total

£'000

£’000

5,933

4,554

10,487

Under their current terms the CPS’s two PFI contracts are set to expire at the end of November 2015. The CPS PFI liabilities will therefore end in 2015/16.

The figures contained in the table above are drawn from Note 16 of the CPS 2013/14 Annual Report and Accounts, ‘Commitments under PFI contracts’.

The remaining Law Officers’ Departments do not have any PFI liabilities.
