asked Her Majesty's Government:
In the case of the Department for International Development, how many (a) voluntary and (b) compulsory redundancies have been taken to date as a result of the Gershon review; what is the total departmental bill for each type of redundancy; and what is the natural wastage during the Gershon period to date for the department.
There have been no compulsory redundancies within the Department for International Development (DfID) as a result of the Gershon efficiency review.
The total number of voluntary departures arising from the review is set out in the table below. Under resource accounting, costs are recorded against the year in which departure was first agreed. The amount shown for each year represents the total estimated cost of departure to DfID, which in practice is spread over a number of years until an individual attains normal pension age.
|Year||Number of Voluntary Departures Agreed in Year||Total cost to DfID|
