At present staff at each grade at the UK Permanent Representation to the EU are:

In the senior management
SMS4 1
SMS3 1
SMS2 1
SMS1 12
In the delegated grades
D7 4
D6 37
C5 2
C4 26
B3 6
A2 5
Staff employed locally

To collate a year-by-year breakdown would incur disproportionate cost. The general staffing levels at the UK Permanent Representation have remained reasonably consistent in recent years.
