HC Deb 18 December 1995 vol 268 c992W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many officials he employed(a) full time and (b) part time in his Department in each of the last three years to answer letters sent to him from hon. Members; and what was the estimated overall cost of replying to them in each of the last three years. [5625]

Mr. Hague

Most Welsh Office staff handle correspondence as part of their duties; it is not possible to estimate the proportion of time, or the cost, spent in answering letters from hon. Members.
