§ Mr. Dobson
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many members of the Office of Arts and Libraries, of whatever grade or specialisation, are engaged whole or part-time in public and press relations, expressing the total in whole-time equivalents; and what is their total annual cost to public funds.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
None. The press officers in the Privy Council Office also cover the work arising from my responsibilities for the arts.
