Departmental Pay

Volume 486: debated on Monday 12 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many people his Department employs who receive a salary of over £100,000 per annum. (245875)

The Department of Energy and Climate Change does not employ any staff until it is formally constituted via the Transfer of Functions Order and Parliament votes a supply via the Spring Supplementary Estimate. Details of staff transferring from the Departments for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform are also still being finalised. Until these Machinery of Government changes have been completed, I am unable to answer this question.
