The UK does not collect comprehensive information on the number of Government of Yemen workers receiving salary payments.

However, we welcome reports of the Government of Yemen making recent progress towards paying public-sector salaries across more of the country, including in Hodeidah governorate and other Houthi-controlled areas.

The UK continues to encourage the Government of Yemen to resume the full and regular payment of public-sector salaries in all areas of the country.
