To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which of his Department's projects have received sponsorship in the last financial year; who the sponsor was in each case; what the nature of each project was; what time-period was covered by each project; what the total cost of each project was; how much money was involved in each sponsorship deal; and if he will make a statement. 
Due to disproportionate costs we have been unable to obtain details of all sponsorship for the Home Office for 2002–03; however I am able to produce details of the major sponsorship projects undertaken.
