While the Treasury is required to approve all special severance payments, as the primary responsibility for making these settlements falls to departments, it is the responsibility of those bodies to keep records of them. The Treasury does not therefore hold the information in the format requested and could provide such information only at a disproportionate cost.

I have written to the hon. Gentleman in response to his Point of Order of 25 June 2013, a copy of which I have placed in the Library of the House.
