To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what was the total amount spent by his Department in 1989 on management and computer consultancy contracts, excluding hardware and software purchases; if he will list each management or computer consultancy contract awarded by his Department in 1989, giving in each case the name of the consultancy firm and the subject of the assignment; and what is the total amount that his Department has budgeted to spend in the current year.

[holding answer 28 March 1990]: We estimate that our expenditure in the financial year 1989–90 will be £4·0 million. A list of contracts awarded is in the table. The provisional budget for the financial year 1990–91 is £3·5 million.Comprehensive records of all contracts with consultancy firms are not held centrally. It would be disproportionately expensive to collect all the information required. The list identifies those management and computing consultancies which began in 1989–90 and are

valued at £10,000 or more:
