Departmental Temporary Employment

Volume 508: debated on Thursday 25 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change 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. (320010)

Since its inception on 3 October 2008 my Department spent a total of £374,939 on temporary staff in the financial year 2008-09. The latest available figures for financial year 2009-10 show an expenditure of £1,603,259 on temporary staff.

The information on the numbers of temporary staff and companies from which the staff was sourced can be provided only at disproportionate cost.
