Staff in this division, like all others in the Department, are covered by the policy on the payment of bonuses as stated in a reply by my hon. Friend the Member for Gloucester (Mr. Dhanda) to the hon. Member for South Holland and the Deepings (Mr. Hayes) on 18 December 2007, Official Report, columns 1310-11W. Given the small number of staff in the home information packs division, it would be a breach of confidentiality and therefore inappropriate to give details.
The breakdown of information in the format requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
All departmental expenditure is claimed in accordance with published departmental guidance on financial procedures and propriety, based on principles set out in Managing Public Money.
