§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what expenditure has been incurred by her(a) Department, (b) agencies and (c) non-departmental bodies in 2002 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. 
§ Alun Michael
The expenditure on external market research which has been recorded centrally by Defra in 2002/03 was £354,000.
The list of the surveys is:
- Corporate Identity research
- Illegal Meat Imports
- General Public tracking—omnibus
- GM Crops desk research
- GM Debate Foundation discussion workshops
- GM debate—stimulus content creation
- Defra Customer Vision
- Defra's sponsorship activities
The information not held centrally within Defra and for each agency and non-departmental body for which Defra is responsible could only be collated at a disproportionate cost.
