Cases for DWP are conducted both in-house and by agents acting on behalf of the Department. The information requested in respect of legal fees concerning remuneration of its employees and compensation on legal cases also concerning remuneration of its employees in each of the last 10 years is not readily available. It would involve a detailed examination of individual records held by the DWP (London and Leeds office) and from external sources from the last ten years. The information could be obtained only at a disproportionate cost.
