Regional Ministers

Volume 481: debated on Thursday 23 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what the estimated cost to the public purse is of the work of regional ministers annually; and if she will make a statement. (229053)

The estimated cost of the work of the regional Ministers over the last year is £1.173 million. This figure includes Government office and departmental staff supporting these Ministers in their regional role. It does not cover any further costs incurred by the Ministers’ home Departments as the information is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
