HC Deb 26 July 1990 vol 177 c439W
Mr. Cryer

To ask the Prime Minister if she will list the political advisers and public relations advisers currently employed in her Department, including those persons paid by other organisations and seconded to the Government, giving in every case the source of payment, rate of salary and expenses.

The Prime Minister

There are no public relations advisers. The special advisers currently employed in my office are:

  • Professor B. Griffiths
  • Mr. A. Dunlop
  • Mr. G. Guise
  • Mr. R. Harris
  • Mr. H. M. Harris-Hughes
  • Mr. I. K. Whitehead

All are paid from public funds. It is not our practice to reveal the salaries of individual advisers as they are individually negotiated in relation to previous outside earnings and are therefore confidential. Expenses may be paid within the normal civil service rules.
