To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much of his Department's spending on administration in 2007-08 was in relation to (a) the 2012 Olympics, (b) the arts, (c) sports, (d) heritage, (e) tourism, (f) licensing and (g) the creative industries. (225504)

The administration costs (the direct costs of departmental policy development and implementation) directly relating to each area of responsibility were as follows.

£

2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games

5,480,000

Arts

1,826,000

Sports

1,827,000

Heritage (architecture and the built environment only)

1,315,000

Tourism and licensing

1,220,000

The creative industries (including broadcasting)

2,562,000

Tourism, licensing and other policy responsibilities for the hospitality industry were the responsibility of a single division, and it is not possible to disaggregate the costs without incurring disproportionate cost.
