Departmental Temporary Employment

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many full-time posts were filled on a temporary basis for a period in excess of six months in his Department in each of the last three years. (200660)

The information is not held in the format requested. However, I am able to provide the monthly average of the number of people filling a post on a temporary basis for Financial Year 2006-07 and for 2007-08 which was 2,581 and 2,867 respectively. These numbers do not include temporary or agency staff filling vacancies nor do they distinguish between full-time and part-time posts. They also exclude staff in Trading Funds.
