HC Deb 19 May 2003 vol 405 c597W
Mr. Bercow

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what the salary bill was for special advisers in his Department in 2002–03; and what it is expected to be in 2003–04. [108509]

Mr. Paul Murphy

In 2002–03 the estimated total expenditure on salaries in the Northern Ireland Office for the two special advisers was £90,068.

As there is currently one special adviser to the Secretary of State, we would expect the salary bill in 2003–04 to be approximately half that of the previous year.
