To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 17 March 2010, Official Report, columns 880-1W, on housing: sustainable development, what the cost to his Department was of the stand at Ecobuild; if he will publish on his Department's website a copy of each speech; and whether he has made an assessment of the implications for his Department's policies of the Ecobuild event.

The cost of the Department's stand at the Ecobuild conference was £24,000, excluding VAT.

Where formal presentations were made by officials at the conference, copies are available on the Ecobuild conference website at:

www.ecobuild.co.uk/seminars.html.

The popularity of the Ecobuild event has confirmed for me the commitment of the industry to improving the sustainability of homes and industry's positive response to this Government's polices for promoting sustainable homes.

I see the answer was already there and the cost was in fact less than the cost of the 5 members of staff employed by my MP who's work rate must be questionable as Mr D doesn't seem to do very much really.

Why is my MP employing 5 yes 5 members of staff to write his letters yet they cannot find out this info before wasting money on another question???
