HC Deb 26 April 2002 vol 384 c504W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment. Food and Rural Affairs what the cost has been of criminal damage to her Department's buildings in each of the last four years. [44835]

Mr. Morley

The cost of criminal damage to buildings used by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (and before 8 June 2001, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) over each of the past four years is as follows:

1998–1999 2,500
1999–2000 11,250
2000–2001 1,800
2001–2002 4,200

The figures above ignore damage or mess which was repaired or cleaned by facility management contractors at no extra cost to the Department.
