I refer the hon. Member to the pay multiples section of my Department's Annual Report and Accounts 2011-12, a copy of which is available in the Library of the House.

The lowest full-time equivalent salary was £20,000 to £24,999 in 2010-11 and £15,000 to £19,999 in 2011-12. The reason for the change is that some staff transferred in from the former regional development agencies (as part of the new arrangements for strengthened administration and oversight of the European Regional Development Fund) on salaries lower than the previous minimum in the Department.

Figures are not available for 2012-13 as we are only two pay months into the financial year. Data are not held centrally for the Department's Executive agencies or non-departmental public bodies.
