Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many press office staff were employed by (a) her Department, (b) its agencies and (c) its non-departmental public bodies (i) in each year since 1996-97 and (ii) at the latest date for which information is available. (189670)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Taunton (Mr. Browne) on 18 February 2007, Official Report, column 14W.

Information on agencies and non-departmental bodies is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
