Dr Southcott asked the Minister for Employment Participation, in writing, on 4 December 2008:

What proportion of reported increased staffing in his department is at the Senior Executive Band 1 or above (Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Annual Report 2007-08, page 260).


Mr Brendan O’Connor (Minister for Employment Participation) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

The 2007-08 Annual Report for Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations is the first report of its nature for the Department. It contains staffing data as at 30 June 2008. It does not contain previous year data. Dr Southcott refers to page 260 of the annual report in his question however, this is no commentary on this page referring to staff increases. It is therefore not possible to answer the question.
