The costs for the financial years 2005-06 and 2006-07 are as follows:

£ million
2005-06 2006-07
Permanent civil service staff 1,809 1,803
Permanent non-civil service staff 258 246
Temporary/agency staff 377 504

Figures are derived from the annual report and accounts and reflect personnel employed within the Departmental Boundary for the Annual Accounts, and therefore exclude Trading Funds.

The figure for permanent non-civil service staff includes locally engaged civilians employed overseas, and Ministers. The figure for temporary and agency staff includes both directly employed casual staff and payments to contractors for agency staff. Monthly figures could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
