Mr. Jeremy Browne:
To ask the Secretary of State for Health how much his Department has spent on (a) focus groups and (b) opinion polls in each year since 1997-98; how much he estimates will be spent on each category in 2008-09; and if he will make a statement.

A list of expenditure by the Department on focus groups and opinion polls in each of the years since 1997 could be provided only at disproportionate cost, as the Department does not hold this information centrally.

I have not undertaken any personal training courses at public expense since undertaking this appointment.
