Departmental Written Questions

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what methodology his Department used to determine whether answers to questions in the formulation “if he will set out with statistical information related as directly as possible to the tabling hon. Member’s constituency the effects on that constituency of his Department’s policies since 1997” could be provided without incurring disproportionate cost; and if he will make a statement. (323873)

The information used by the Department in responding to these questions was readily available on the Department’s or the local authorities’ websites or from the Government offices for the regions. The risk of incurring disproportionate cost did not therefore arise.
