John McDonnell: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the average basic pay for full-time equivalent (a) men and (b) women in (i) AA, (ii) AO and (iii) EO or equivalent grades is in each of his Department's bargaining units. 
Mr. Hoon [holding answer 23 March 2009]: The current average basic pay for men and women within each of the Department's Bargaining Units is shown in the following table. London and outside London salaries are included within the averages shown. Allowances are not included.
There are only a small number of staff in some of the grades which may affect the statistical significance of the salary levels shown. Additionally there are some differences in grading structures between the Department's businesses so it is not always possible to make direct salary comparisons based on grade. For example the salary range shown for VOSA at AA contains level 1 and level 2 VOSA staff. The above table is therefore a
best fit only and this should be taken into account when reference is made to the salary levels.
John McDonnell: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the current pay (a) minima and (b) maxima are for staff at each grade from AA to Grade 6 outside London in each of his Departments bargaining units. 
Mr. Hoon [holding answer 23 March 2009]: The current pay minima and maxima applicable within the individual bargaining units in the Department for Transport for staff at each grade from AA to Grade 6 outside London are:
|AA||A0||EO||HEO||SEO||Grade 7||Grade 6|
There are some differences in grading structures between the Departments businesses so it is not always possible to make direct salary comparisons based on grade. For example the salary figures shown for VOSA at AA contains level 1 and level 2 VOSA staff. The table is therefore a best fit only and this should be taken into account when reference is made to the salary levels.
Mr. Hoon [holding answer 19 March 2009]: The Department for Transport is structured into five groups, each headed by a Director General (DG). Each DG group has an embedded finance team that monitors the financial activity of that group. The Department has four executive agencies and they report into three of these DG groups. The work of the embedded finance teams within these three DG groups includes reviewing the executive agencys outturn. This is completed on a monthly basis with information being passed to the central finance teams and subsequently, in a summarised format, to the Departments Executive Committee.
Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to the answer of 23 February 2009, Official Report, columns 487-88W, on departmental recruitment, what estimate he has made of the annual salary cost of (a) permanent, (b) temporary and (c) agency staff recruited by his Department in each year since 2005-06. 
Mr. Hoon: The recruitment of temporary staff is governed by the Civil Service Commissioners Recruitment Code. The Department of Transport has contracts with employment agencies for the supply of agency staff.
Mr. Amess: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will place in the Library a copy of his Department's internal round robin guidance for each round robin Parliamentary Question tabled to his Department since December 2008; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Hoon: In its response to the Third Report of Session 2003-04 from the Public Administration Select Committee, the Government made clear that while individual Departments may liaise with each other when they receive the same question, this co-ordination
does not cut across the line of ministerial accountability which is that it is for individual Ministers to decide on the final content of an answer to a Parliamentary Question.
