HC Deb 09 February 2004 vol 417 cc1135-6W
Mr. Carmichael

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what the cost of the Strategy Unit's report on the UK fishing industry was; how many copies of the report will be produced; how many people have worked on the project; and when the report will be made public. [153992]

Mr. Alexander

The project is still ongoing. The Strategy Unit's budget for this financial year is £4.7 million, which funds a range of projects and other work.

The normal print run for Strategy Unit reports is 2,000, though the report and supporting documents will also be on the Strategy Unit website.

A total of 12 people worked on the project, and six of these were engaged on a full-time basis.

The report will be published shortly.
