Departmental Billing

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 20 May 2009, Official Report, column 1411W, on departmental billing, how much his Department’s non-departmental public bodies spent in interest under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 in the last three years. (282330)

This is an operational matter for the non-departmental public bodies (NDPBs) of the Northern Ireland Office, which operate independently of Government. I would encourage the hon. Gentleman to write to the NDPB chief executives.

A list of these NDPBs is available on page 7 of the Northern Ireland Office departmental report, published in June 2009.
