Transparency data

In June 2010 the Government announced a drive for greater transparency of data across the public sector. As part of this agenda we are publishing data relating to staffing and financial expenditure over £25,000.

Spending over £25,000

As part of the Government's commitment to publish details of public spending over £25,000 we are publishing monthly reports.

Senior staff expenses
