HC Deb 22 July 2002 vol 389 c791W
Mr. Liddell-Grainger

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how much money each RDA spent on newspapers and magazines over the last two years. [69397]

Ms Hewitt

The RDAs are not required to report their spend to this level of detail, which could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. Each RDA reports a single figure for total spending on administration. Individual RDAs are free to decide the level of detail in their own internal accounting subject to the requirements of Government Accounting and other restrictions.
