To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs how much (a) his Department and (b) its agencies has paid to the Eunomia consultancy; and for what purpose.
pursuant to the reply,
My answer for the financial years, 2003-04, 2004-05 and 2005-06 were incorrect. The correct figures are in the table.
The rest of the answer remains correct and is detailed in full as follows. From information held centrally, the sums paid to the company Eunomia are as follows:
|Financial year||Value (£)|
|1 April 2006 to 30 June 2006||9,380.49|
The expenditure with Eunomia covers work commissioned by DEFRA on environment regulation policy and the waste implementation programme. Data on any expenditure with Eunomia by DEFRA's agencies is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
