The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister has made no estimate of these costs. The London borough of Camden estimated that it had spent £1.6 million on preparing for the housing private finance initiative (PFI) scheme for the Chalcots Estate in its press release on 23 February this year. We do not apportion costs to individual PFI casework.
