To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many (a) senior managers and (b) managers are employed in each Northern Ireland health trust. [110566]

Figures showing the number of administration and clerical staff working in the 18 health trusts and other agencies are shown in the table. It was not possible to provide specific figures for the subsets of managers and senior managers. This was due to the complex nature of the administration and clerical grades and more specifically the lack of an agreed definition for manager and senior manager posts.
