As has been the practice since 2010, my Department does not send out hard copy Christmas cards, but we do celebrate Christmas, including marking the Christian basis of this important time of year.

We do send out an electronic departmental Christmas card, based on a template which Ministers and staff can choose to use. There is no cost to the Department.

We do not centrally record every individual recipient who may have received such an e-card from the entirety of the Department.

Assuming the hon. Member was not on any Christmas card list, I would direct him to the card at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/communitiesuk/15990874712/ and hope he had a happy and peaceful festive break.
