Govt spending £30m on agency staff

The Government has spent £30m recruiting agency staff to fill the positions of civil servants, who in turn received some £90m in redundancy payments. Jon Trickett, the shadow cabinet office minister, accused the Government of having a "casual approach" to public sector reforms and warned of a "lasting damage on the services upon which we all depend".


Prime minister David Cameron is facing further questions over his 'vanity staff', as it emerged that 26 civil servants on fixed-term contracts have been appointed since the general election. Shadow minister for the civil service Jon Trickett has written to cabinet secretary Gus O'Donnell after the number of named individuals who advised the Tories in opposition that have been appointed to civil service positions rose to 10 last week.
