51. Mr. Winnick

To ask the Attorney-General if he will give the latest estimate of the likely total eventual cost of the legal proceedings and advice in the United Kingdom and abroad in connection with cases to date on "Spycatcher."

The total amount of costs expended to date is about £660,000. I cannot usefully estimate the total eventual cost.
