HC Deb 23 January 2002 vol 378 cc971-2W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what expenditure has been incurred by her(a) Department, (b) agencies and (c) non-departmental public bodies in each of the last four years on (i) opinion polling, (ii) focus groups and (iii) other forms of market research; and if she will list the surveys commissioned and the purpose of each. [27945]

Ms Rosie Winterton

The Lord Chancellor's Department, its agencies and non-departmental public bodies conduct a range of exercises to measure public satisfaction with services and future needs. Many of these are carried out at a local level so that services can be provided to match the needs of local communities. The cost of collating and detailing all this activity would be disproportionate.
