Departmental Television

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer with reference to the answer to the right hon. Member for Horsham (Mr. Maude) of 4 November 2008, Official Report, column 310W, on departmental television, what premium television channels (a) HM Revenue and Customs and (b) the Valuation Office Agency subscribe to; and at what cost. (250472)

Data systems show a total spend of £8,521 across HMRC in the year April 2007 to March 2008 with British Sky Broadcasting Ltd and Sky Business.

The system does not have the level of detail to show the channels subscribed to and would involve disproportionate cost to provide the information requested.

The Valuation Office Agency does not subscribe to any premium television channels.
