The information requested is not held by DCLG.

Information on income and expenditure is collected from local authorities on ‘Revenue Outturn’ forms; however expenditure on adoption or adoption agencies is not separately identifiable. Spend on adoption services will be included within the wider category ‘Children and Family services—other’. This can be found at the following link:
