The number of full-time equivalent staff in each directorate are presented in the following tables. The figures are for 30 September 2008. They cover permanent and temporary civil servants, and people on loan or secondment into the Department. Most of the cases where the grade or directorate is unknown relate to secondees in, where our systems do not currently always record this. Information is not held centrally in a way that allows us to provide a team breakdown, and to assemble this information from local records would incur disproportionate cost.
