Departmental Public Participation

Volume 476: debated on Thursday 22 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what consultants have been contracted by his Department to conduct public participation activities in the last three years; and how much expenditure his Department has incurred on each such contract to date. (206216)

Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) contracts, and the resultant expenditure specifically for public participation activities, are not categorised separately from that for external consultancy as a whole. The information the hon. Member requests could, therefore, be provided only at disproportionate cost.

However, annual expenditure on external consultants or consultancies as a whole is published in the FCO's annual departmental reports, copies of which are available on the FCO website at:
