Charities: Fees and Charges

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department charged the charity organisers for the RAF Brize Norton 2005 Children in Need concert. (163146)

I will write to the hon. Member and place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.

Substantive answer from Derek Twigg to Nick Harvey:

I undertook to write to you in answer to your Parliamentary Question of 19 November 2007, (Official Report, Column 475W) asking how much the Ministry of Defence charged the charity organisers during the Children in Need concert held at RAF Brize Norton in November 2005.

I can confirm that the charity organisers of the Children in Need event held at RAF Brize Norton in November 2005 were not charged by the MOD, because the BBC met many of the costs and donations from sponsors covered others.

I am placing a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.
