The information requested is not available. HMRC does not record centrally details of all posts created within the department.
However, HMRC has a target to reduce its number of full-time equivalent posts by 16,000 between 1 April 2004 and 31 March 2008, and redeploy 3,500 of these to additional frontline posts. HMRC reports regularly on progress towards these efficiency targets in its Spring and Annual Reports, copies of which are available in the Library of the House.
