Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Over the last 5 years by either by month or year can I please know

1. The number of staff who were employed by the DWP who illegally took money within the course of employment from the DWP (public funds)

2. The amount of money taken if possible for each case or if this is not possible a total either month or year

I have read a number of cases in the media where staff who were employed by the DWP within the course of employment illegally took money therefore this is public information . You can format this as you wish in line with DPA / FOI in the easiest cost effective manner for you. If 5 years exceeds the cost I will accept 3 years worth of data I would prefer the data by month but if this is not possible I will accept a total by year

Yours faithfully,

David Andrew Jameson
