To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will provide an analysis of the non-identifiable spending over the past five years on recreation, culture and religion as summarised in table 9.12 of Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses 2011.
Table 9.12 in the Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses 2011 National Statistics release shows that in each of the past five years, approximately one-third of expenditure on recreation, culture and religion was non-identifiable. Expenditure is non-identifiable when it cannot be classified as benefiting particular regions or countries and is deemed to be incurred on behalf of the United Kingdom as a whole.
The table below shows the detail on items of non-identifiable recreation, culture and religion spending, the majority of which is Department for Culture, Media and Sport spending. The largest area of spend is broadcast licence revenue.
