To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what her estimate is of the expenditure of her Department on newspapers, magazines and periodicals in 2002. [106297]

The Department's expenditure on newspapers, periodicals and magazines in the financial year 2002–2003 was £91,095. This figure covers central purchasing through Defra's library services. This excludes the cost of newspapers, periodicals and magazines purchased in Defra local offices and in the Department's Executive Agencies. These figures could only be compiled at disproportionate cost.
