Departmental Ministerial Policy Advisers

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 13 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what expert advisers have been commissioned by her Department and its agencies since 1997; on what topic each was commissioned; and whether the advisers so appointed made a declaration of political activity in each case. (246662)

The information requested is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Contractors are not asked to declare political activity as a matter of course. Contract terms and conditions task contractors with clarifying that no conflict of interest arises in connection with the services they are to deliver under contract.
