Departmental Accountancy

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will place in the Library a copy of his Department's (a) chart of accounts and (b) resource account codes and usage descriptions for the current financial year. (210979)

The chart of accounts for 2008-09 reflects the Department's structure for the year and will not necessarily reflect the 2007-08 structure or that for future years. The chart shows the relationship between parent codes (used for preparing resource accounts) and child codes (used for more detailed management purposes). Each code has a brief description. I am arranging for copies of this document to be deposited in the House Libraries.

The Department intends to review its chart of accounts during the summer, which may result in changes to the chart or the descriptions used.
