To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, for what reasons the Cabinet Office List of Ministerial Responsibilities published in October 2016 does not have Ministers' Private Office telephone numbers in all cases but rather switchboard numbers; and if he will make a statement.
12 December 2016
The List of Ministerial Responsibilities sets out the individual responsibilities of Government Ministers and departments. It also provides details of Non-Ministerial departments and Executive Agencies. It is for individual departments to determine the level of contact details to be provided, and they try to be as helpful as possible. When errors are identified, they are corrected on the online version. An updated hard copy version will be issued in due course.
