This information is not held centrally for the whole Department. However an estimated 275,000 letters were sent by Royal Mail from the Department's HQ at 2 Marsham street in the last 12 months. Apart from couriers and the Government's internal dispatch service no other postal provider has been used. 2 Marsham street also houses Ministry of Justice staff whose letters are included in this estimate.
