Departmental Foreign Workers

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 10 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many (a) EU foreign nationals and (b) non-EU foreign nationals are employed by his Department. (256222)

The information could be obtained only in the form requested at disproportionate cost as once individuals are appointed to the Department, having cleared nationality, passport, proof of identity, reference and criminal records bureau checks, our human resource information systems do not distinguish between EU or non-EU nationality.
