UPDATE: The Taxpayers' Alliance has taken up my suggestion and sent an FOI request to the Speaker's office...
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST FOR DETAILS OF PAYMENTS MADE TO
PETER CARTER RUCK BY OR WITH THE AUTHORISATION OF SIR MICHAEL MARTIN, SPEAKER OF
THE HOUSE OF COMMONS
Dear Mr Castle,
I am writing to
request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible. I would like to know who pays for the media services provided by Peter Carter Ruck in relation to the Speaker of the House of Commons, Michael Martin
*If these costs are not paid wholly by Sir Michael Martin, I would like to know where the funding for these services comes from?
*If it is from a public source I would like to know the name of that source and the amount paid to them for services in the last three years (or since they first began working for the Speaker).
