Volume 463: debated on Thursday 19 July 2007

To ask the Prime Minister (1) how many non-pensionable bonuses were awarded to members of staff in the former Department of the Deputy Prime Minister in the last three years; and at what total cost; (146990)

(2) how many staff in the former Department of the Deputy Prime Minister have taken (a) five or more, (b) four, (c) three and (d) two periods of sick leave of less than five days in the last 12 months.

I have been asked to reply.

The Deputy Prime Minister’s Office was established in May 2006. Because of the small number of staff involved, disclosing the information requested could breach staff confidentiality. Information for periods before May 2006 is held by The Department for Communities and Local Government.
