Since 2009 DCLG has utilised 0303 numbers for inbound calls. At no point since 2009 has DCLG utilised premium rate numbers.

Additionally each department is asked to provide a yearly report on any premium numbers in use (amongst other numbers). This is published here https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/customer-service-lines-reports.
