Departments: Legal Costs

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much was spent by her Department on legal fees in each of the last five years. (139408)

Expenditure on external legal advice commissioned through the legal directorate of the Department for Communities and Local Government, and the former Office of the Deputy Prime Minister, is set out in the following table. Records of any other expenditure on legal fees, including those incurred by other predecessor departments, are not held centrally and to provide this information would incur disproportionate cost.
