Of the 1,4771 questions received by my Department, from the beginning of 2008 until the end of the Session, only 24 received no answer on the grounds of disproportionate cost. This represents less than 0.02 per cent. of the total.
If a question is deemed to exceed the threshold it is my Department's policy to provide whatever information it can, if available, within that threshold.
1 These figures cover questions tabled in both the House of Commons and House of Lords, including oral questions in the House of Commons. They exclude transferred or withdrawn questions.
