Departmental Translation Services

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how many language translators are employed in (a) his Department and (b) its non-ministerial departments; and what the cost of translating services provided by such people was in the latest period for which information is available. (257149)

Responsibility for employing language translators is delegated to the Department’s different business units. As such there is no central record of language translators and the Department would incur a disproportionate cost if it were to compile such a record.
