Departmental Publications

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families pursuant to the answer of 12 January 2009, Official Report, columns 9-10W, on departmental publications (1) what estimate he has made of the cost of answering the question, broken down by sub-category of expenditure; (248473)

(2) which documents were circulated to schools by his Department in exceptional circumstances in 2008.

The cost of preparing an answer to the question was considered likely to exceed the disproportionate cost threshold and, as a consequence, no estimate of likely expenditure was necessary. Similarly, to retrieve the information as to which documents the Department has circulated to schools in exceptional circumstances in 2008 can also be obtained only at a disproportionate cost.
