Question for Department for Communities and Local Government

UIN HL4832, tabled on 9 February 2015

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what was the total cost of the Review of the Balance of Competences between the United Kingdom and the European Union to the Department for Communities and Local Government and its associated agencies, broken down by (1) staff time, (2) printing costs, (3) running of engagement events, (4) witness expenses, (5) publicity of the reports, and (6) any and all other associated costs.

My Department contributed to the review, but did not lead on the actual production of any of the reports. The staff time spent on such contributions was undertaken by existing staff, so no additional cost was incurred as such over and above the Department’s staffing budget. A breakdown of staff time is not centrally held and would incur disproportionate cost to estimate.
