The cost of purchasing cards for Christmas 2008 was £3,799 for the Treasury and £798 for the Debt Management Office. The Treasury’s cards were purchased from Card Aid, who made a donation to charity on behalf of the Department.

Christmas parties are funded by staff and not the Department and Christmas decorations are also either purchased by staff or by facilities management companies without recourse to public funds.
