Volume 699: debated on Wednesday 12 March 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many staff are employed by the Department for International Development and bodies within its control; whether they have plans for staff reductions in that department; and, if so, in which areas such reductions would fall. [HL1757]

The Department for International Development currently employs 2,552 staff including UK based civil servants and staff employed locally overseas. This number is expected to fall by about a further 80 staff by the end of the current financial year.
