To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list all of the reports his Department has commissioned from external consultants in each of the last three years; for each of the last three years, how many reports from external consultants to his Department led to further consultancy work being commissioned, stating for each of these who were the original and subsequent consultants and briefly describing the subject matter of the consultancy work; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

Information on reports produced by external consultants working in the Home Office during the past three years could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
