Volume 456: debated on Thursday 1 February 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence which organisation is responsible for the (a) salary and (b) expenses of each secondee out of his Department; and if he will make a statement. (112028)

The Ministry of Defence will continue to be responsible for the salary of secondees but may seek re-imbursement from the external organisation to which the secondee is appointed. Travel and subsistence costs incurred by the secondee during the period of secondment will be paid by that organisation at the rates applicable to their own staff of equivalent status.
