§ Mr. Donohoe
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how much his Department and its executive agencies have spent drafting, publishing and circulating each of their customer charters and customer standard documents; and how many copies of each document have been issued. 
§ Sir John Wheeler
Seven charters and 25 charter standard statements have been published by Government Departments and agencies in Northern Ireland. The table gives details of the cost of publication and circulation of the charters and charter statements and the number issued in each case. Individual public service organisations are responsible for producing and distributing their own charters for those who use their services. The table shows costs of production and distribution in so far as they are available centrally.
The drafting of charters and charter standard statements is generally carried out as an integral part of the work of the services concerned and therefore the cost of drafting is not available.
