BSB Chair, Sir Andrew Burns said: "Our Business Plan describes
our core regulatory activities and sets out our priorities for the
year ahead. Over the last twelve months, we have made good progress
against each of the strategic themes that we identified as part of
our three-year strategy. But we recognise that further work is
needed in 2017-18 and that what we need to do is becoming ever more
complex. Despite this, thanks to even greater efficiency in our
operations, I am pleased to confirm that our expenditure for the
year ahead is budgeted to be the same as last year."
