Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Does the DWP hold any recorded information to show whether there are any freemasons as staff in the DWP?

Does the DWP hold any recorded information whether masonry is compatible or not with the Nolan principles of public life ?

Are staff asked to declare their membership of the freemasons or do any so voluntarily, and are there any minuted discussions of whether freemasonry should be declared have ever taken place?

How many freemasons are registered as staff members in the DWP?

Yours faithfully,

Fiona Hughes
