HC Deb 25 June 2002 vol 387 c823W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what the cost was of the Department's 2001 staff Christmas party; and how many people attended. [61652]

Estelle Morris

My Department held no centrally organised Christmas parties for staff in 2001. Some individual divisions or teams will have organised their own events, but these would have been funded by contributions from the staff themselves.
