In June 2010 the Finance Committee published its report on the Budget Strategy Phase of the 2011-12 budget process. The report examined how the public sector was preparing for a period of tightening public expenditure and signalled that the Committee was likely to undertake a more significant piece of work on longer-term approaches to public spending, including issues such as preventative spending. The Committee subsequently decided to undertake an inquiry into preventative spending at its meeting on 15 June 2010.
