To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what concerns the then Cabinet Secretary raised about the appropriateness of Mr Damian McBride’s conduct when Mr McBride was a civil servant. (290134)

I refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 15 October 2009, Official Report, columns 1038-39W, to the hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb).

In relation to Mr. McBride’s employment as a permanent civil servant it is not the Government’s practice to disclose information relating to the employment of individual civil servants which is confidential between the employer and employee.
