asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the total expenditure by his Department in 1980–81 and the estimated expenditure in 1981–82 on fees and commission to any outside bodies providing advice to, or acting as agents for, his Department in furtherance of the policy of privatisation of the assets of his Department or of nationalised industries or other bodies.

In 1980–81 expenditure of this kind by my Department totalled £125,000. In 1981–82 the estimated total expenditure is £171,000. This does not include fees in respect of the disposal of land no longer required by the Department nor fees incurred in the normal course of Property Services Agency business.
