pursuant to the reply, 8 January 2007, Official Report, c. 273W

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 (£)
2002-03 23,860.42
2003-04 107,094.23
2004-05 428,972.25
2005-06 711,929.20
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.
