asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many non-geographic telephone numbers are in use by the Ministry of Defence and its agencies; what services can be accessed by calling each of them; and what revenue has been received from them between September 2004 and September 2006. [HL3302]
The use of 0800, 0845 or 0870 numbers in the department and its agencies is determined at local level in accordance with individual business requirements and ordered directly from the supplier. Records of these numbers are not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
