The Treasury has not made such an estimate.

The current Office for Budget Responsibility forecast predicts that general government employment will fall from 5.2 million at the start of 2013 to 4.9 million by the second quarter of 2015.

The next publication of the Whole of Government Accounts will provide total numbers of redundancies in the public sector in 2011-12. This will be published on 17 July.
