In 2008-09, the total amount spent by the Department on whole-time equivalent temporary workers from the administration budget, comprising agency workers, contractors and consultants, was £16,458,992.

Prior to 2008-09, temporary workers were not recorded on the Department's Human Resources system and therefore this information is not held centrally.

To provide the total amount spent by the Department on employing temporary workers in 2006-07 and 2007-08 would incur disproportionate cost.
