HC Deb 04 April 1989 vol 150 cc64-5W
Mr. Tim Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what was the total amount spent by his Department in 1988 on management and computer consultancy contracts, excluding hardware and software purchases; and if he will list each management or computer consultancy contract awarded by his Department in 1988, giving in each case the name of the consultancy firm and the subject of the assignment.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The total amount spent by the Department in 1988 on management and computer consultancy contracts, excluding hardware and software purchases, was £1.89 million.

Comprehensive records of all contracts with consultancy firms are not at present held centrally. It would be disproportionately expensive to collect all the information
