Employment Conditions Abroad

Volume 493: debated on Thursday 4 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much his Department has paid Employment Conditions Abroad in each year since the inception of the contract; and what the future monetary value of any outstanding contracts is. (275460)

We do not hold figures for spending on this contract before 2004. To recalculate them would incur disproportionate cost. The cost of the contract to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office each year since then has been:

Cost (£)

2004

2006

Our contract with Employment Conditions Abroad is ongoing. We anticipate the cost of the contract and their services to be approximately £84,525 in 2009. Prices have been frozen at 2008’s rates.
