DCMS engaged Sport England to monitor the contract for the demolition and rebuilding of Wembley Stadium and provide confirmation that work relating to milestones had been satisfactorily completed and payment could be made by the Department. The cost of this monitoring in the last three years is as follows:

£000
2005-06 75
2006-07 50
2007-08 75

As the monitoring only related to confirming that work had been satisfactorily completed there is no breakdown of costs into categories.
