The financial information requested is not held centrally by this Department as it is a matter for individual authorities. The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) collects financial information from library authorities annually, including information relating to the hiring of audio and visual material, and copies of CIPFA statistics are available in the House Library.
