asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether there is any proposal to raise the advisory limit of £50 to be spent in answering parliamentary questions; and what would be the maximum amount now if the limit were raised in line with inflation.

This advisory figure was set in 1965. At today's costs the figure would be nearly £200. I am considering whether fresh guidance is needed.
