  • Please note that initial contact with the Private Office of any Cabinet Secretary or Minister must be in writing. If you need assistance with this please contact us for advice.
  • Correspondence addressed to any Minister may be passed to the relevant subject expert for reply on behalf of the Minister.
  • We aim to respond to all correspondence within 20 working days.
