§ Mr. Godsiff
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what was the estimated cost of the Office of Fair Trading inquiry into the Sky television deal with the Premiership and Football League. 
§ Dr. Howells
I understand from the OFT that, in the inquiry into the Sky television deal with the Premier League and the BBC, legal costs amounted to approximately £3 million and expert witness costs to about £900,000. No estimate for staff costs of the OFT has been made.
