HC Deb 08 February 2001 vol 362 c682W
Mr. Gibb

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will provide a detailed breakdown of the expenditure by Ofgem in 2000–01 on the merger of Offer and Ofgas; and how much of this relates to(a) redundancy, (b) refurbishment costs and (c) dilapidation. [149135]

Mr. Andrew Smith

Ofgem's 2000–01 final costs relating to the merger of Offer and Ofgas will not be available until after the end of the financial year. However, merger costs in 2000–01 are now expected to be around £14 million rather than the initial estimate of £20.2 million.
