Department of Resources: Finance

Volume 502: debated on Thursday 10 December 2009

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission how much money was owed to the House of Commons Department of Resources by (a) hon. Members, (b) Officers of the House and (c) the Press Gallery Committee for expenditures incurred on catering and retail goods and services on 1 September 2009. (302830)

It is not possible to provide the figures requested as at 1 September, except at disproportionate cost. This is because the database changes every day and the figures are only readily available if the data for a particular day have been retained. Reconstructing the data for a past day for which the data have not been retained would be an extremely time-consuming exercise involving a lot of manual adjustments to the data.
