To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how much was spent on external consultants and advisers by (a) his Department and (b) each (i) non-departmental public body and (ii) executive agency for which his Department is responsible in each year since 2005. (320778)

For the last three years the Department has published in its annual report details of expenditure on consultancy by the Department itself, its executive agencies, the Planning Inspectorate, Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre and Fire Service College as well as the Ordnance Survey and Government offices. Details of expenditure from other non-departmental bodies are not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

Figures for earlier years could be supplied at only disproportionate cost.
