asked Her Majesty's Government:
What administration costs were incurred by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in relation to the European structural and cohesion funds for the last financial year for which figures are available. [HL1426]
The costs incurred by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in administering European structural and cohesion funds for the current financial year total less than £400.
DCMS only deals with cases above the £1 million threshold for European structural and cohesion fund payments. All cases below this amount are administered by Government Offices for the Regions.
