Directorate of Management and Consultancy Services

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 28 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence (1) what Directorate of Management and Consultancy Services studies have been issued since 1997-98; (249709)

(2) if he will place in the Library a copy of each Directorate of Management and Consultancy Services study produced in 2008.

I will place a copy of the list of substantive studies completed by the Ministry of Defence’s Directorate of Management Consultancy Services between January 2000 and December 2008 in the Library of the House. While every effort has been made to ensure the completeness of the list over that period, it has not been possible to confirm absolutely that all substantive studies have been included due to a lack of consistency in recording information during a period of restructuring and change. Records prior to 2000 are not held on a central database and could be accessed and verified only at disproportionate cost.

I will place copies of the reports produced in 2008 in the Library of the House, subject to a check to ensure they do not contain information that should be withheld. I will write to the hon. Member when this has been done.
