Departments: Pay

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 21 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many staff in her Department received bonus payments in 2007; what proportion of the total workforce they represented; what the total amount of bonuses paid has been; what the largest single payment has been; and if she will make a statement. (143087)

The processes for determining annual pay and bonus awards for Foreign and Commonwealth Office staff in the senior management structure and in the delegated grades follow a timetable, which reaches a conclusion in late July. We will not therefore be in a position to supply the figures requested until August.

I will write to the hon. Member as soon as this information is available and place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.
