Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many press officers are employed by the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (154677)

This is a matter for the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS). Anthony Douglas, the chief executive, has written to the hon. Member with this information and a copy of his reply has been placed in the House Library.

Letter from Anthony Douglas, dated 26 September 2007:

I am writing to you in response to the parliamentary question that you recently tabled.

Cafcass has four staff members in its Communications Team, covering a range of functions. The press office function takes approximately the equivalent of 0.5 to 1 full time member of staff; this work of a press officer is however spread across the whole team.

A copy of this reply will be placed in the House Library.
