Letter of correction from Barbara Follett:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for South-West Surrey (Mr. Hunt) on 2 February 2009.

The figures previously given were inaccurate because they did not include the additional costs associated with the hire of a second room, production and technical support. When these were included the final cost to the Department of the tourism summit was £27,889.65.

The correct answer should have been:

Barbara Follett [holding answer 22 January 2009]: The estimated total cost to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport of the tourism summit in Liverpool on 8 January is £27,889.65.
