Departmental Public Consultation

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much his Department spent on (a) written consultation, (b) consultation road shows and (c) focus groups in each of the last three years. (319762)

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:

Other research commissioned is likely to have included a focus group element but it is not possible to determine the costs of these elements.
