HC Deb 01 April 2004 vol 419 cc1590-1W
Matthew Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if she will list the employment agencies which her Department has used to supply temporary staff in each financial year since 1996–97 to the most recent date for which figures are available. [163815]

Ms Hewitt

The following list is of those employment agencies that have supplied my Department with temporary staff for the calendar year 2003. However, the information requested for the period 1996 to 2002 is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.

The DTI has had a formal agreement with Adecco, since 1 December 2002, and most of its requirements for temporary staff are met by Adecco. However, the Department uses the services of other employment agencies, where they can supply temporary staff with specific skills.
