HC Deb 31 January 1989 vol 146 c155W
Mr. Cryer

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what was the total expenditure on salaries of ministerial advisers in his Department for each completed year since 1979; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Parkinson

The ministerial advisers appointed in my Department since 1979 are as follows:

  • 1979 Mr. M. Portillo
  • 1983 Ms. L. Rouse
  • 1987 Mr. J. Derrick
  • 1989 Mr. N. D. Martin

It is not the practice to reveal the salaries of advisers as they are individually negotiated in relation to previous outside earnings and are therefore confidential. The length of appointment for each adviser varied.
