Work and Pensions
Chris Kelly (Dudley South, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what external policy research his Department has commissioned in each of the last six years; which organisation was commissioned to provide each such piece of research; and what the cost of each such piece of research was.
Mark Hoban (Fareham, Conservative)
All the external research commissioned by DWP since November 2006 is listed in a table which will be placed in the Library. Please note these projects include all external social and economic research and analysis commissioned and not just policy research.
