HC Deb 08 November 1999 vol 337 c423W
Mr. Baker

To ask the Prime Minister what has been the annual salary of each special adviser employed at 10 Downing Street for each year since 1 May 1997. [96875]

The Prime Minister

Special Advisers are paid individually negotiated salaries within a published pay range as follows:

1997–1998 £24,349 to £73,484
1998–1999 £26,000 to £76,056
1999–2000 £26,728 to £78,186

In line with the practice of previous Administrations, the salaries of individual Special Advisers are not disclosed as this would breach the privacy of the individuals concerned. The exceptions are two of my Advisers—Jonathan Powell and Alastair Campbell—who have additional executive responsibilities and are paid outside this range. Their salaries are each as follows:

1997–1998 £87,936
1998–1999 £91,014
1999–2000 £93,562
