Departmental Pay

Volume 475: debated on Wednesday 7 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what his Department spent on wages and salaries in each of the last three years, broken down by departmental division. (203097)

The Department’s expenditure on wages and salaries, analysed by divisions, in financial years 2005-06 to 2007-08 is set out in the table. The figures relating to financial year 2007-08 are subject to finalisation of annual accounts.

During the three years shown, there have been numerous transfers of functions, projects and other pieces of work between divisions. For instance, in 2005-06, Information Systems was part of Human and Business Resources before becoming a division on its own right. It should not, therefore, be inferred that changes in the levels of expenditure necessarily represent shifts in resources to or from a particular function.
