|Salaries paid to civil servants|
|Year ending 31 March|
Listed above are the salaries paid to civil servants, in the years stated, by agency. The figures exclude NI contributions, superannuation, bonuses, short term circumstances (e.g. deputising allowances) and staff on short term promotion. The first total includes all the agencies in the OWP (formally DSS) and therefore The veterans agency (formally war pensions) is included but the employment service is excluded up to March 2002. This produces a large increase (36.9 per cent.) in 2002-03 when ES became part of the DWP. The second total includes ES and excludes war pensions from 1997-98 and therefore reduces the effect of the agency movements.
