Departmental Impact Assessments

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many equalities impact assessments his Department has undertaken in the last 12 month period for which figures are available; and what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of such assessments. (255080)

EIAs are an integral part of the policy making process, not an additional or separate exercise and so the number of EIAs is not available. A cost estimate would be available only at disproportionate cost.
