To ask the Prime Minister how many letters he has received from members of the public in each year since 1997–98. 
§ The Prime Minister
The information is not available in the format requested.
I receive many items of correspondence including from hon. Members, the general public, various charities and private companies. In the last two years, the total number of items of correspondence has been approximately 1.1 million, an increase from approximately 500,000 in 1999, 2000 and 2001 and 300,000 in 1998.
The correspondence covers a wide range of issues and my office deals with them efficiently.
