Mr. Laws

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many press officers were employed in his Department in each year from 1990–91 to 2003–04; what the total cost was in each year; and if he will make a statement. [162843]

Mr. Caplin

Information for the years from 1994–95 to 2001–02 was provided in my letter of 14 July 2003 to the hon. Member, a copy of which has been placed in the Library of the House.

Information for the years 1990–91 to 1993–94 is no longer available. Information for the years 2002–03 to 2003–04 is currently being researched and I will write again to the hon. Member once the information is to hand.
