To ask Her Majesty's Government how much they estimated the inquiry by the Committee on Standards in Public Life into party political finance would cost; what the final cost of the inquiry was; and how they would assess what represents value for money in the case of such inquiries.

The total cost of the inquiry, including staff and Committee time during the period July 2010 to November 2011 and the publication of the report, was £445,000.

On value for money, I refer the noble Lord to my answer of 1 December 2011, Hansard, Column WA87.
