§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what information technology consultants his Department has employed in each of the last five years; for what purpose; and at what total cost.
§ Mr. David Davis
My department has placed a large number of information technology consultancy contracts during the last five years. It is impossible to give a brief summary; I will however write to the hon. Member.
I regret that the costs of IT consultancy are not separately identifiable within my Department's overall expenditure on consultancy and related services.
