Departments: Conferences

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 29 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport which industry summits her Department has (a) hosted and (b) co-hosted with other Government Departments in each of the last five years; what policy initiative each summit was associated with; and what the cost of each such summit was. (130381)

The Department has an ongoing programme of meetings with industry representatives from across all of its sectors. A relatively small proportion of which have been specifically termed Industry summits’. The most recent examples of these are the events being held to inform the Creative Economy programme and those which were held on ticket touting issues. In these cases, the costs incurred (in addition to those for internal administration) are as set out in the table.

An analysis of all of the industry summit’ events held over the last five years, the policy initiative each was associated with, and the cost of each, could only be provided at disproportionate expense.
