Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE’s) government funding will reduce over the next four years, so that by 2019/20 it will receive only £123.4m, or 48% less than it did in 2009/10. The Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT) said this was a “body blow” to the watchdog, which released data as part of its Business Plan for the current financial year, 2016/17.

Laying out the bones of the detail, HSE said that for this year (2016/17) it will receive £140.9m in taxpayer-funded income, going down to £135.6m in 2017/18, then to £128.4m in 2018/19 and finally, in 2019/20, it will receive £123.4m. That last figure is almost half the amount it received from the Department of Work and Pensions in 2009/10 (£239.4m).
