EU: Select Committee

Volume 705: debated on Monday 17 November 2008

asked the Chairman of Committees:

What is the annual running cost of the European Union Select Committee and its sub-committees. [HL6322]

Individual Select Committees are not budgeted for separately, but the Committee Office estimates that attributable costs of the European Union Committee and its sub-committees in financial year 2007-08 amounted to approximately £2,043,000 in resource terms. These costs exclude a number of services provided on a House-wide or Parliament-wide basis which are not apportioned to individual activity centres and cannot be allocated with any accuracy, such as accommodation, utilities, security, Members’ expenses, catering, financial and human resources functions, and ICT services.
