House of Commons printing and publishing charges are calculated in arrears by financial year and are therefore available only in this form. Figures covering the costs of early day motions, to the nearest £1,000, and for the four financial years completed under the present contractual arrangements, are given in the following table:

Financial year £
2000–01 443,000
2001–02 338,000
2002–03 516,000
2003–04 573,000

Other costs associated with administering early day motions, such as editorial preparation and control, and electronic publishing, are not separately identifiable.
