The information is as follows:
(a) The Department commissions an annual survey of DTI staff, at an external cost of around £20,000 a year. It also conducts some smaller and one-off surveys as part of its internal communications with a minimal external cost.
(b) The Department does not centrally collect the information sought and to provide it would entail disproportionate cost. Details and costs of DTI surveys, some of which ask respondents to give opinions, are available from the website at www.dtistats.net/surveyactivity.
