Departmental Consultants

Volume 506: debated on Wednesday 3 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much (a) his Department and (b) each (i) non-departmental public body and (ii) executive agency for which his Department is responsible spent on external consultants and advisers in each year since 2005. (319765)

The expenditure on external consultants and advisers by the Department and its agency, the Royal Parks, is set out in the table.

The Department does not centrally maintain records on consultancy spend in respect of its non-departmental public bodies. To collate this information would incur disproportionate cost.
