To ask the Deputy Prime Minister how many jobs under the remit of his Department in (a) the core Department, (b) non-departmental public bodies, (c) executive agencies and (d) independent statutory bodies, organisations and bodies financially sponsored by his Department and other such organisations, are located in (i) Scotland, (ii) each region in England, (iii) Wales, (iv) Northern Ireland and (v) overseas, broken down by (A) whole-time equivalent jobs and (B) the percentage per individual department, body or organisation. 
In response to parts (a) and (c), I refer the hon. Member to Table D of the annual publication "Civil Service Statistics", which covers permanent staff numbers (FTE basis) for each Government Department and their respective executive agencies. Table D shows civil servants by regional distribution.
Copies of the publication are available in the Libraries of the Houses. The last edition, based on April 2001 data, was published in June 2002. The next edition, based on April 2002 data, was published on 24 July 2003.
Alternatively, this information is available at the following address on the Cabinet Office Statistics website: http://www.civil-service.gov.uk/statistics/css.htm.
