To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how much his Department and its predecessors has spent on food law enforcement for local authorities, by region, in each of the last 10 years. [111101]

Food law enforcement by local authorities in England is funded through formula grant, distributed by the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and its predecessor Departments. Formula grant is not ring-fenced or hypothecated so it is not possible to identify a separate sum for a particular purpose.
