Departmental Pay

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much was claimed in reimbursable expenses by Senior Civil Service staff in his Department and its agencies in the last 12 month period for which figures are available. (187547)

The Treasury and Valuation Office Agency’s accounting systems do not hold data on reimbursable expenses by grade and the information could be provided only at disproportionate cost. For information on Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs I refer to the answer I gave the hon. Member on 5 February 2008, Official Report, columns 1055-56W.

The Government Actuary’s Department does not employ any members of the senior civil service and the Royal Mint made no such payments in 2006-07. The following payments were made in 2006-07: Debt Management Office £1,000; National Savings and Investments £15,000; and OGCbuying.solutions £15,000.
