Departmental Temporary Employment

Volume 485: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development with reference to the answer of 28 October 2008, Official Report, column 935W, on departmental temporary employment, how many staff were recruited through each company in each year; and for how long on average staff recruited through these companies worked for the Department in each year. (242312)

As temporary agency staff are not employed by DFID, they are not paid directly through our payroll, nor are they recorded centrally on our HR database. Consequently there is no historical record of how many staff were recruited through each company, and it is not possible to say for how long on average staff worked in DFID in each year.
