The Department's expenditure on wages and salaries, analysed by divisions, in financial years 2005-06 to 2007-08 is set out in the table. The figures relating to financial year 2007-08 are subject to finalisation of annual accounts.

During the three years shown, there have been numerous transfers of functions, projects and other pieces of work between divisions. For instance, in 2005-06, Information Systems was part of Human and Business Resources before becoming a division on its own right. It should not, therefore, be inferred that changes in the levels of expenditure necessarily represent shifts in resources to or from a particular function.
