This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Her Majesty’s Treasury,

On 24 November Danny Alexander, Treasury Chief Secretary, said "£500 million is a realistic worst-case estimate of the impact of this day of strike action on the economy" in respect of the Public Sector strike on 30 November 2011.

Would you please let me have an analysis of this figure, and of any other figures produced for scenarios other than worst-case, to show all factors taken into account, and the cost or benefit of each of those factors. Please also detail how those costs and benefits have been calculated, and by which department or organisation.

I look forward to your early reply.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Andrew
