To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what her Department's (a) total managed expenditure, (b) total spending on Information Technology and (c) spending on Information Technology as a proportion of its total managed expenditure was in each financial year since 1997–98. 
The contribution by DFID to total managed expenditure can be measured by the total spending under resource and capital budgets, less non cash items in AME (Annually Managed Expenditure). Data for 1998–99 to 2001–02 were published in our Departmental Reports. New estimates will be published in the same table in the 2003 Departmental Report in May 2003.The approximate figures are detailed in the following table.
