To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to the Corrected Answer of 22 January 2019 to Question 206251 on Government Departments: Staff, how many civil servants in his Department were working (a) part and (b) full time on projects in the Government Major Projects Portfolio in (i) June 2016 and (ii) December 2018.
The GMPP is a continually evolving portfolio of the government’s most complex and high-risk projects. Direct comparisons of the GMPP across years should therefore be treated with caution. Projects join and leave the GMPP throughout the year and it is therefore likely that a simple comparison across two-time points will refer to different sets of projects.
My Office works with lead Government departments on a range of major project investments in Wales in non-devolved sectors. The Office has no civil servants working full-time on the GMPP and does not record the number of staff engaged part-time on supporting these projects.
