§ Stephen Twigg
While the Department pays for some production costs of its annual report, these only cover the design and typesetting. The costs of printing are met directly by the publisher, The Stationery Office (TSO) and do not fall to the Department. The Department also buys in copies from the TSO to distribute internally and to our partners.
The cost for the last two years are:
The Department for Education and Employment 200/ Report Typesetting and design £33,813 Buying in copies from TSO £18,600 Total £52,413
The Department for Education and Skills 2002 Report Typesetting and design £42,346 Buying in copies from TSO £16,773 Total £59,119
Costs are not available for earlier years.
