Government Departments: Special Advisers

Volume 685: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What was the total cost to departments incurred in answering individual Questions for Written Answer from the Lord Lester of Herne Hill on the support given to special advisers; and what would have been the cost of providing an answer based on information obtained centrally. [HL7602]

The Cabinet Office does not hold the information requested in respect of the total cost to departments of answering individual Questions for Written Answer from the noble Lord on the support given to special advisers. The only information held centrally by the Cabinet Office related to its own special advisers.
