HC Deb 30 April 1991 vol 190 c171W
Mr. Dobson

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what was the total sum paid out in fees to outside organisations in the furtherance of privatisation by his Department in 1979–80 and in each following year; and what is his estimate for 1990–91 and budget for 1991–92.

Mr. Curry

The Department has not paid any sums to outside organisations for the furtherance of privatisation in the period 1979–80 to 1989–90. We keep continually under review the contribution that the Department might make to the Government's privatisation policy.
