The following table sets out the amounts the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has spent on properties, in central London, in the last three financial years in totals. This year's projected expenditure is expected to be approximately £5 million, in keeping with the need to seek out economies and efficiencies, one of the reasons why the Department has relocated to 100 Parliament street. The data, building by building, cannot be retrieved, without incurring disproportionate costs.
