Departmental Temporary Employment

Volume 481: debated on Monday 27 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which companies have been used by his Department for providing temporary staff since its establishment; and what the value of contracts with each such company has been. (229203)

The Department was created on 28 June 2007. The Department has used three agencies—Adecco, Reed and Hays—to recruit the majority of temporary staff at a total cost of £1,155,725.

For a small number of specialist temporary staff, the Department has used other agencies but information on this could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
