Dr. Cunningham

asked the Prime Minister if she will publish in the Official Report the grades and estimated annual costs of the staff of the Cabinet Office dealing with inner-city initiatives, and show for each post whether the present occupant was (a) a member of the Cabinet Office staff on 11 June 1987, (b) in another Department on 11 June 1987 or (c) employed elsewhere and, in such cases, where.

The Prime Minister

Since the beginning of July, one official at grade 3, two at grade 7 and a senior personal secretary have been temporarily detached from their duties in other Departments and seconded to the Cabinet Office to work on urban policy issues. The annual costs of such officials are £98,524. In addition, a number of other officials in the Cabinet Office spend some of their time on matters relating to urban policy issues in the course of their regular duties.
