To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, pursuant to the Answer of 7 June 2022 to Question 11686 on Chequers: Staff, whether the salaries of any staff employed at Chequers are paid for by the public purse.
16 June 2022
Chequers is not a government building; it is run and managed by an independent trust. Under the Chequers Estate Act 1958 it has been the practice, under successive Governments, for the Estate to receive a grant-in-aid payment. Staffing numbers and salaries are a matter for the Trust.
