The following table shows the expenditure on external room and venue hire in the financial years listed:

Financial year













Over the above 6 years the average annual expenditure was £743,140. The spend in 2009-10 was £819,612.

The response covers the core department and three of its four executive agencies (Maritime and Coastguard Agency, Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency). The Vehicle Certification Agency’s finance system does not separately identify expenditure on room and venue hire.

It is not possible to identify the proportion of this expenditure incurred in London.
