To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will list the studies conducted inside his Department by management consultants in the last 10 years, naming the consultancy, the cost, the subject and the outcome in each instance.

A list giving details of consultancies and projects for the years 1986–87 to 1989–90 has been placed in the Library.

Details prior to 1986–87 are not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

The amount paid to individual consultants is subject to commercial confidentiality. Information on the outcome of each consultancy is not collated centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

Studies prior to April 1989 were undertaken on behalf of the then Department of Health and Social Security; therefore some projects listed do not relate solely to health matters.
