Departmental Manpower

Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many civil servants in his Department and its predecessors (a) transferred to other Government departments and (b) left the Civil Service in each of the last five years. (162732)

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply separately—13 November 2007, Official Report, columns 203-7W.

Statistics on civil servants transferring between Departments from the former Department of Constitutional Affairs are not published and therefore not available in the response from the National Statistician; however, an update on centrally held figures shows that a total of 107 staff transferred or moved on loan to other Government Departments for the year to September 2006.

Figures for staff who left the civil service in each of the last five years can be found as part of the Annual Civil Service Statistics publication in the separate response from the National Statistician to this question.
