§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many officials in the Department serve on EU committees or working parties. 
§ Caroline Flint
Membership of EU committees, working parties and working groups is not fixed. The number of officials who attend such meetings on behalf of the Department will therefore vary at any given time, with the most appropriate policy officials attending depending on the subject matter under consideration. On average, however, the Department will not send more than two officials to such meetings.
