Departmental Pay

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what the hourly rates of pay of all non-permanent staff working for his Department and its agencies were in each of the last 12 months; and how many staff were receiving each rate in each of those months. (196452)

Due to the way historic records are held, individual hourly rates of pay by month could be provided only at disproportionate cost. However, the average hourly rate of basic salary for 1,329 casual staff paid in March 2008 was £9.42. These figures exclude any employer contributions such as national insurance.
