Cabinet Office Questions – 14 December 2011

Michael Dugher asked a question to the Cabinet Office Minister, Oliver Letwin, today during Cabinet Office Questions.  Michael asked:  


“According to figures published by the Cabinet Office last week, the Deputy Prime Minister has appointed four more special advisers at a cost to the taxpayer of at least £190,000. At a time when the average family is set to lose £320 a year as a result of tax credit changes and at a time when almost everyone is asking what exactly is the point of the Deputy Prime Minister, does the Minister think that this is a good use of public money?”
