asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many car parking spaces are reserved for Scottish Office staff at the St. James's centre car park. Edinburgh; what is the total annual cost; and how much is recovered.
Two hundred and four spaces are available to Scottish Office staff during working hours from Monday to Friday. Responsibility for the provision of spaces and the related financial arrangements lies with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Environment. No charge is made to the staff who use the car park.
