(2) how much the Cabinet Office 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.
The Prime Minister’s Office is an integral part of the Cabinet Office.
The information on which bonuses were paid specifically to press and communication officers in each of the last 10 years is not available in the form requested and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
For overall information on bonuses paid I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 14 January 2008, Official Report, column 913W, to the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr. Hammond), which gives information on bonuses paid to Cabinet Office staff since 2003.
