Dominic Raab (Esher and Walton, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many employees of his Department were paid (a) between £80,000 and £100,000 and (b) in excess of £100,000 per year in each of the last five years.

holding answer 10 December 2012
The number of employees of this Department who were paid in excess of £100,000 and between £80,000 and £100,000 in each of the last five years is set out in the following table. All figures are rounded to the nearest 10.
Staff with basic salary over £100,000
Staff with basic salary between £80,000 and £100,000
Surely some mistake…
Does this fall into the ‘more information needed’ or ‘myth busted’ category?
