To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many current Ministers have been allocated an extended ministerial office (EMO); how many staff work in each EMO; how many of those staff were civil servants prior to moving to the EMO; how many of those staff have been recruited from outside the civil service; and what the salary grade is of those EMO staff.

A revised version of the Ministerial Code was published on the 21st December 2016, which removed the provisions for setting up Extended Ministerial Offices (EMOs). My officials are working with the Civil Service Commission and relevant departments on the process of disbanding any remaining EMOs.
