Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many United States citizens are employed by British embassies. (126179)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office employs 13,592 staff in its missions overseas, of which 2,897 are UK-based and 10,695 are locally employed. UK-based staff are British citizens. We do not hold central records on the nationality of local staff. It would not be possible to obtain this information without incurring disproportionate cost.
