To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport from which companies his Department sourced temporary staff in each of the last three years; how many temporary staff his Department employed in each year; and what the monetary value of the contracts with each such company was in each such year.

The Department for Transport and its executive agencies operate separate finance and human resource systems and there are no centralised records relating to the numbers of temporary staff employed or the value of contracts with suppliers used to source temporary staff. To search across the Department’s disparate finance and human resource systems to obtain this information would incur disproportionate cost.

Information relating to spend on temporary staff is published in the Department’s annual report. In the past three years these figures are:

£ million

2006-07

16.906

2007-08

27.265

2008-09

27.700

Where records are available, the numbers of temporary staff employed by the Department in the past three years are:

Number

2006-07

1,088

2007-08

1,353

2008-09

1,075

A table has been placed in the Libraries of the House showing the suppliers that the Department has used to source temporary staff between April 2007 and March 2009 and spend during this period.
