HC Deb 10 July 2000 vol 353 c394W
Mr. Brady

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many employees of his Department and its agencies have been recruited from the New Deal; and what percentage this represents of total staff. [129101]

Ms Beverley Hughes

Since the New Deal programme commenced, the number of people recruited through New Deal DETR (Central) is 14 and its executive agencies is 23. This represents 0.3 per cent. and 0.1 per cent. of the total staff respectively. The number of New Deal staff in DETR (Central) and its executive agencies shown as a percentage of posts at a level recommended for New Deal staff is 1.5 per cent. and 0.5 per cent. respectively.

The Department is actively looking to increase these numbers by further recruitment exercises in the coming months.
