§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (1) what measures the Department takes to assess the cost and staff implications of compiling material for the departmental annual report; 
(2) how much staff time, and at what estimated cost, was put into compiling, the departmental annual report; and what were the figures for each year for which figures are available since 1990. 
§ Mr. Goodlad
None. All Government Departments are required to present departmental reports to Parliament. The report therefore forms part of the normal FC0— diplomatic wing and ODA—work load. Accordingly, no separate assessment of the costs and staff implications of compilation is prepared.
