To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many senior civil servants left his Department and its public bodies in each month since May 2010; what their names are; what the rate of turnover of senior civil servants in his Department was during this period; and if he will make a statement.

I am able to advise that 50 senior civil servants left the Ministry of Defence during the period May 2010 to December 2011. This figure includes those that have retired, resigned, died in service or left on voluntary early release terms. The figure does not include individuals who have been permanently transferred to other Government Departments or who have transferred on temporary loan. Details are as follows:

February 0

For reasons of personal privacy, it would not be appropriate to provide the names of senior civil servants who are no longer in Government employment.

The turnover of senior civil servants during the period May 2010 to December 2011 is assessed as 19.42%.
