Volume 506: debated on Monday 1 March 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what the cost to the public purse was of (a) printing, (b) distributing and (c) producing the text of document Putting the frontline first: smarter Government; and what the cost to the public purse was of the promotion of that document. (319144)

The total printing and production costs of Smarter Government were £37,292 including the distribution of hard copies to Parliament and the Stationery Office. A bespoke multimedia website was also designed at a cost of £6,972.54. The content was produced internally by civil servants, and it is not possible to disaggregate this cost from the cost of other work undertaken by these officials. The only promotion costs incurred were the printing of two banners at £792.
