Departmental Publications

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what the (a) circulation, (b) cost and (c) title is of each publication his Department has issued since 1 July 2005. (89583)

Publications issued by DFID since 1 July 2005 are listed in the following table. This sets out the total quantity produced as a full account of circulation for each individual title would incur disproportionate cost. The titles issued have been produced by teams across the Department—some for a broad public audience, others for more specialist stakeholders. DFID publications are generally available for free from the website, www.dfid.gov.uk, and many of the more specialist titles are now produced in electronic format only. Evaluation studies have been listed separately.
