Answered By:

A full transcript would cost in the region of £2000 and the conference cost £161,500. However, as the main speeches outlining the general position of the speakers have already been made available on the website, the real cost in terms of officer time to co-ordinate additional activity including ensuring compliance with Data Protection legislation, editing, fact checking and seeking authorisation from all participants would not be justified.
