HC Deb 28 July 1988 vol 138 c391W
Mr. George

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food how much has been spent by his Department in each of the past five years on the evaluation of departmental programmes; and what proportion this constitutes of(a) the amount allocated for evaluation and (b) the Department's total budget.

Mr. Donald Thompson

The process of evaluation of my Department's programmes is part of the work itself. It is therefore not possible to identify separately the resources involved.
