§ Mr. Matthew Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) 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; 
(2) what measures the Department takes to assess the cost and staff implications of compiling material for the departmental annual report. 
§ Mr. Norris
Publication of the annual transport report is a parliamentary requirement. A large number of staff contribute to the report, but no separate records are kept392W of the total staff time involved: a meaningful estimate could be made only at disproportionate cost.
