I can confirm that the total cost inclusive of VAT was £204,192.36.

One hopes that the new government will try to put an end to this waste of public money.

Disgraceful. In times of plenty, universities could get away with pouring money into shutting up their staff members. These days, I would hope that they wouldn't be able to get away with this, but it does seem that some universities will go to any length to preserve their image, even if it means that students miss out on a good education.
