Dear Cabinet Office,

I note from recent press and social media coverage that the Minister of State for Brexit Opportunities and Government Efficiency recently placed notes on vacant desks in the Cabinet Office stating:

“ Sorry you were out when I visited. I look forward to seeing you in the office very soon. With every good wish, Rt Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg MP.”

An example of such coverage is listed below: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/202...

Please can you let me know:

1) the volume of notes printed,
2) the total cost of this to date,
3) whether this has been funded by the public purse, and
4) if any Senior Civil Servant grades were consulted prior to printing, any copies of relevant emails, memos, letters or otherwise directly related to this campaign or the approach to distribution.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Ramsay
