DCMS will complete its assessment of the value-for-money procurement savings in July. Last year's savings for DCMS were £5.88 million and this year's return is expected to be a similar figure. I will write to the hon. Member with the 2004–05 savings as soon as they are available. Civil service posts in DCMS increased by 4.6 full-time equivalents in 2004–05.
