UK Trade and Investment: Manpower

Volume 457: debated on Wednesday 7 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many commercial officers and UK Trade and Investment staff were employed in each UK overseas mission in each of the last 10 years. (122857)

The figures set out the number of full-time equivalent staff working on UK Trade and Investment activity in posts worldwide for the financial years 2003-04, 2004-05 and 2005-06. Figures for earlier years are not readily available and it would incur disproportionate cost to compile them.
