HC Deb 28 July 1988 vol 138 cc498-9W
Mr. George

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

Mr. Brooke

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.
