Departmental Ministerial Policy Advisers

Volume 485: debated on Wednesday 17 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many special advisers were employed in his Department at each pay band on 30 November 2008; and what his Department's total expenditure on special advisers was in 2007-08. (243572)

Since 2003, the Government have published on an annual basis the names and numbers of special advisers in each pay band. For the most recent information I refer the hon. Member to the statement made by my right hon. Friend, the Prime Minister on 22 July 2008, Official Report, columns 99-101WS.

Information on the employment of special advisers prior to 2003 was provided at regular intervals and is available in the Library.
