To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer to the right hon. Member for Horsham of 25 February 2010, Official Report, column 698W, on civil servants: pay, what the (a) job title, (b) department and (c) salary range was of each of the 43 jobs; and which of those jobs was advertised on the public part of the website.

Tables detailing job titles, Departments and salary ranges will be placed in the Libraries of the House. The Cabinet Office is responsible for setting the referral point for each pay band in the senior civil service. For pay band 2 posts, this is £120,000 and for pay band 3, £140,000. Departments wanting to pay beyond these referral points must first obtain approval from the Cabinet Office. Where Departments wish to pay more than £150,000 they must obtain approval from the Chief Secretary to the Treasury.
