Information for departmental spend on written consultations specifically is not held centrally. There have been no consultation road shows in the last three years. For the last three full financial years, the focus groups spend for the Department is in the table. All consultations are published on the Department’s website:
Financial year Departmental focus group spend (£) 2006-07 24,400 2007-08 80,105 2008-09 30,623
Departmental focus group spend (£)
Other research commissioned is likely to have included a focus group element but it is not possible to determine the costs of these elements.
