Departments: Ministerial Policy Advisers

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Prime Minister how much has been allocated for political advisers for the Prime Minister for 2007-08. (126136)

Since 2003, the Government have published on an annual basis the names and overall cost of special advisers and the number in each pay band.

I refer the hon. Member to the written ministerial statement I made on 24 July 2006, Official Report, columns 86-91WS. Information on the number of special advisers before 2003 was provided at regular intervals. This information is available in the Libraries of the House. Information on special advisers for 2007-08 will be published in the normal way.
