Departmental Information Officers

Volume 471: debated on Monday 28 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much his Department paid in bonuses to press and communication officers in each of the last 10 years; and what the (a) highest and (b) lowest such bonus was in each of those years. (182715)

As part of the 2007 annual pay award for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, bonuses totalling £11,730 were paid to press and communications officers. The highest payment was £2,500 and the lowest payment was £680.

To provide the historical information requested for the past 10 years would incur disproportionate cost because in the Department for Culture, Media and Sport information is held by grade and not job role.
