Answered by Yvette Cooper

The Government Office for London staffing figures 1 from 19992000 are in the table.As at April:Number20012402002260200328820043252005(14)3,25The Government Office for London carries out work on behalf of 10 Government Departments.1 GOL staffing figures are calculated as those staff (in staff units, not FTEs) working in GOL on GOL business; figures do not include those seconded into GOL who are paid for by their own employer.2 This is an estimate. GOL staffing may change in 2005, but it is difficult to predict accurately as decisions on future workstreams for Government Offices have yet to be made by central Departments.
