Departmental Information Officers

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 6 April 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many (a) communications and (b) press officers were in post in his Department on the latest date for which information is available. (320793)

The Department employs 26 press officers.

The Department’s human resources systems holds information on individuals by their generalist civil service grade and therefore it is not possible to identify everybody engaged in communications work in the department, and this information could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
