Labour Party Employees (Whitehall Departments)

Volume 450: debated on Tuesday 10 October 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many (a) paid and (b) unpaid employees of the Labour party are (i) located in and (ii) seconded to Whitehall Departments. (90488)

With the exception of the political office in No. 10, where the position reflects long-standing practice under successive administrations, there are no Labour party employees, paid or unpaid, located in or seconded to this Department. Information about the employment status of individuals employed or seconded into Government Departments is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
