Departmental Pay

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what the cost of (a) salaries for permanent civil service posts, (b) salaries for permanent non-civil service posts and (c) payments to temporary or agency workers in his Department was in each month since May 2005. (199533)

Due to the way historic records are held by the Department for International Development (DFID), the separate salary costs for permanent civil service posts and fixed term posts in each month since May 2005 could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

DFID employs locally engaged staff, who work in more than 50 overseas offices. They are employed on local terms and conditions. Their salaries vary from country to country and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

The following table covers the costs paid to the three suppliers of temporary administrative staff managed centrally since 2005.
