Departments: Recruitment

Volume 461: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department and its agencies paid to recruitment consultants in each year since 1997. (140033)

Summaries of the Department’s spend on external assistance are available in the Library of the House. Recruitment consultancy, an element of external assistance, is broken out separately in these reports for the years 2000-01 to 2005-06.

Although the Department collected external assistance expenditure figures before 2000, recruitment consultancy was not reported as a separate category. The requested information for the years 1997-98 to 1999-2000 is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
