HM Treasury spending on rooms used for staff leisure is limited to standard maintenance costs and is therefore indistinguishable from spending on rooms used entirely for business purposes.

The Office of Government Commerce spent £10,000 upgrading shower facilities in 2009, with no other separately distinguishable expenditure for earlier years.

The UK Debt Management Office does not have any rooms allocated purely for staff leisure purposes.
