David Simpson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 25 May 2006, Official Report, column 1977W, on departmental staff, what criteria for the award of non-consolidated bonuses were used in (a) 2004-05 and (b) 2005-06; and what assessment he has made of the (i) average size and (ii) number of such awards in those years. 
Mr. Hanson: The criteria for the award of all non-consolidated bonuses used between (a) 2004-05 and (b) 2005-06 were unchanged in that they were entirely performance related. The number and size of the bonuses available each year therefore vary according to performance of staff and to the budget available.
The increase in the overall value in bonuses awarded in 2005-06 as compared with previous years is due to an increase in the value of non-consolidated performance bonuses paid to non-industrial staff below senior civil service level as a result of the 2005-06 pay settlement. This reflects Government pay policy to reward higher in-year performance through the award of non-consolidated bonuses.
