Departmental Gifts

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many members of staff in her Department have received gifts valued at £100 or higher in the course of their duties in each of the last three years; what these gifts were; and from whom they were received. (242017)

One member of staff only has received a gift of £100 or higher in the course of their duties over the past three years. The gift of a digital camera was kept for departmental use within our Communications Directorate. The gift was received from a party of Japanese volunteer and career fire fighters for attending an Emergency Planning Authority training centre at Southwark on 23 October 2006.
