Departmental Responsibilities

Volume 479: debated on Monday 1 September 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which projects his Department has commissioned from (a) think tanks and (b) charities in each of the last two years for which figures are available; what the aim of each project was; which think tank or charity was commissioned; and how much was paid. (221605)

As there is no clear definition of what constitutes a "think tank" it is not possible to answer the first part of the hon. Gentleman's question. Information relating to project work done by charities could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
