Letter of correction from John Penrose:

An error has been identified in the written answer given to the hon. Member for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves) on 20 June 2012. Since publication, it has been noted that figures in two of the column titles, ‘Lowest’ and ‘Lowest FTE’, in the table provided in the answer, were the wrong way around.

The full answer given was as follows: (112471)

The information requested is set out in the following table:

The highest salary was paid to the director general in the Government Olympic Executive. Their remuneration details are published annually in the Department's Annual Reports and Accounts. This information is also disclosed on the Department's transparency website.

We do not hold this information for our arm’s length bodies. Accordingly, I have asked their chief executives to respond to the hon. Member.

Copies of the replies will be placed in the Libraries of both Houses.
