As the Deputy will appreciate, and my Department and those bodies under its aegis are responsible for a broad range of activities. While some of these activities may be subject to charge none would constitute an income stream of the type instanced by the Deputy.   

Details of income and expenditure by my Department and those bodies under its aegis are set out in the Annual Report and Accounts published each year which are subject to audit by the Comptroller and Auditor General.
