Dear Office of the Advocate General for Scotland,

Were the Department’s former Special Advisers, who had been reappointed after the 2015 General Election and left Government in or after July this year, awarded six months severance pay as part of their severance package?

What were the terms of the severance package for Special Advisers appointed after the 2015 General Election?

Did these terms for such individuals change? If so, how?

What was the proposed total cost of the severance package for Special Advisers before the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron?

What was the proposed total cost of the severance package for Special Advisers after the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron?

Has the department agreed to offer Special Advisers a severance package which has a value over and above their contractual entitlement? If so, what are the respective financial totals?

Yours faithfully,

Matt Foster

Office of the Advocate General for Scotland
