§ Mr. Portillo
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how much money has been spent to date by her Department and by bodies funded by her Department in connection with the National Changeover Plan; on what headings this money has been spent; and how much her Department plans to spend on implementing the plan over the next 12 months. 
§ Mr. Foulkes
To date, we have spent £61,000 in connection with the Euro Changeover Plan. This was in respect of a scoping study carried out by external consultants on the implications of Economic and Monetary Union for the Department as a whole.
We do not anticipate any further external expenditure in the next 12 months.
