Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what funding her Department has provided to (a) the IPPR and (b) IPPR Trading Ltd in each year since May 1997; and for what purpose. (125713)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has made 10 payments to the Institute for Public Policy and Research (IPPR), and no payments to IPPR Trading Ltd since May 1997. The payments range in value from £9.49 to £40,000. It is not possible to establish the precise details relating to earlier payments without incurring disproportionate cost, but from the information available all payments were for goods or services received from the IPPR, rather than funding to this organisation.
