Dear Department for Culture, Media and Sport,

The Scottish Government recently disclosed their spending on Scottish flags over the years 2006-2011.

Please provide me with the equivalent data on what the UK Government has spent on procurement of the English flag, the Cross of St George.

I would also be interested to know if you have details as to which agencies, organisations and public bodies the UK Government has distributed English flags.

Yours faithfully,

Gareth Young
