Government Olympic Executive

Volume 490: debated on Monday 23 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how many staff of his Department have been transferred to the Government Olympic Executive; and from which units such staff were transferred. (263983)

The Government Olympic Executive (GOE) currently comprises 89.8 full-time equivalent (FTE) staff of whom 27.6 have been recruited from other DCMS teams. Following a major restructuring of the Department last year we are unable to provide detailed information on the individual units in which staff worked before joining GOE. However, staff have joined the GOE from each of the main areas of the Department, including those responsible for policy, programmes, corporate services, external relations and private office.
