Departmental Manpower

Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many and what percentage of his Department’s Main Building staff were uniformed staff in each of the last 10 years. (186781)

Individual defence installations do not routinely publish personnel data, as different organisations and agencies are responsible for the same location or site. Figures for the stationed location of UK Regular Forces and civilian staff are only available at local authority level using centrally held data.

The number and percentage of military personnel stationed in MOD Main Building prior to 1 April 2007 are not centrally held and could not be collated without incurring disproportionate cost.

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on 30 April 2007, Official Report, column 1462W, to the hon. Member for Forest of Dean (Mr. Harper).
