HC Deb 09 June 2004 vol 422 cc437-8W
Mr. Edward Davey

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister what the(a) job title and (b) annual salary is of each employee of each New Deal for Communities partnership. [160344]

Yvette Cooper

A list of job titles and the total number of staff falling within salary bands from £0 to £10,000 upwards has been made available in the Library of the House. A few partnerships have declined to give this information for data protection reasons.

The staff listed are funded through management and administration budgets. Overall, partnerships may only spend up to 10 per cent. of their 10-year budget total on management and administration during the life of their programme.

Some partnerships run schemes and projects internally and so have higher staffing numbers. Other NDC partnerships contract out work to external people/organisations and in consequence their staffing numbers are lower.
