To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what projects sponsored by his Department were subject to Gateway reviews in each of the last four years; what status each project was assigned under such reviews; how much his Department spent on Gateway reviews in each such year; and if he will make a statement. (205871)

[holding answer 15 May 2008]: The BERR-sponsored programmes and projects in the following list were subject to ‘medium' or ‘high' risk OGC Gateway reviews in each of the last four years.

A key principle of Gateway reviews is that they are cost neutral. However, where there is a shortfall in Civil Service Gateway Reviewers, suitably accredited external resource may be used. BERR is unable to identify the individual costs for each Gateway review undertaken as this information is not specifically recorded.
