Ipsos MORI

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 6 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills pursuant to the answer of 2 April 2008, Official Report, columns 998-9W, on Ipsos MORI, what proportion of his Department's consultancy expenditure to date has involved payments to Ipsos MORI. (203110)

The Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) was created as a result of Machinery of Government changes in June 2007. The Department is in the process of producing the 2007-08 Resource Accounts. The accounts report both the 2007-08 outturn and 2006-07 comparatives. Until the accounts are completed we are unable to provide the proportion that Ipsos MORI expenditure accounted for as the total of consultancy expenditure for the Department, to do so would be at disproportionate cost.
