To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, for what reason the Whole of Government Accounts for the financial years (a) 2020-21 and (b) 2021-22 have not been published; and when he plans to publish those accounts.
17 July 2023
As set out to the Public Accounts Committee in December 2022, delays to the publication of the Whole of Government Accounts (WGA) have been caused by IT system performance issues and delays to the timeliness of data returns.
The letter to PAC also set out a future delivery timetable for WGA that was formed in collaboration with the National Audit Office (NAO). This set out the plan to publish the 2020-21 WGA in quarter 3 of 2023 and the 2021-22 WGA published in spring 2024.
