Departmental Consultants

Volume 503: debated on Thursday 7 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how many external consultants work for her Department. (303243)

Where DWP contracts for consultancy support it does so primarily by reference to the outcomes or services to be delivered and not by reference to a given number of consultants. Accordingly, the Department does not hold centralised information on the number of consultants being employed on such contracts at any point in time.
