In my written answer of 30 January to the hon. Member for Lewes, 30 January 2007, Official Report, vol. 456, col. l63W, I set out the costs incurred in moving my private office from 2 Carlton Gardens to Dover House, Whitehall.

The figure of £290,000 quoted for the costs of rental and associated charges paid to the Scotland Office was incorrect.

I am advised by the Scotland Office that the actual cost has now reduced to £138,973.
