Departmental Correspondence

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many people were employed in his Department’s ministerial correspondence unit in each of the last five years; and how much it cost to run the unit, including utilities and other expenses, in each year. (187048)

The Scotland Office currently has one member of staff dedicated to processing correspondence. The Office does not maintain a central record of the number of staff undertaking this function in previous years but, in 2006-07, had two members of staff undertaking these duties. The Office does not disaggregate its corporate and central running costs to this level of detail.
