Departmental Pay

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what the 10 highest salaries paid by his Department to non-civil servants are. (199920)

The Department was set up as part of the Machinery of Government changes on 28 June 2007. In the subsequent period, as part of the process of establishing the new Department, it has been necessary on occasion to engage the services of contractors, consultants and temporary staff who are usually not employees and are not on the DIUS payroll. Aside from this situation, the non-civil servants on the payroll are Ministers whose salaries are already in the public domain.
