Extracted from questions asked by Chris Huhne and published on They work for you
Latest figures 2005

Ministry of Transport 244,500,000
Defence 547,672,000 (operating costs) plus 134,466,000 (additions)
Northern Ireland 10,724,000
Dept Culture Media and Sport 64,600,000
Welsh office 176,161.40 (Thats for less than 3m people ie 60 per person on IT alone!)
International Development have no clue as to what they spend
Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) over the last five years is 478,245,262. including 180 million contract with Global Crossing (Note: Global Crossings UK turnover was only 239m)
Duchy of Lancaster 35,756,263
Treasury 3,087,000
Deputy Prime Ministers office 18,108,962
National health service trust expenditure 130,037,000 (But apparently the new programme will be 12.4 billion over 10 years, or 206 per person)

That little lot is 1,284,600,277 or about 21 per person in the UK and remember thats just IT expenditure!
