§ Ms Hodge
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many posts were lost in(a) the Home Office and (b) agencies for which the Home Office is responsible, listing the total lost posts agency by agency in (i) 1993–94 and (ii) 1994–95; and how many posts are proposed to be lost in 1995–96. 
§ Mr. Howard
Changes in the numbers of posts are not recorded centrally. Consequently the information sought could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
Staff in post information can be found in the annual publication "Civil Service Statistics" and in annex 4 of the Department's annual report, Cm 2508, both of which are available in the Library.
