Mr. Woodward: The Departments Fixed Asset Register, excluding its agencies and Executive NDPBs, records details of computer systems under IT equipment, this includes computer hardware, software, licenses, servers and output devices.
Mr. Maude: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many permanent staff in (a) his Department and (b) its agencies are classed as (i) staff without posts and (ii) part of a people action team. 
Mr. Woodward: In relation to the first part of this question the number of staff classed as without post within the Northern Ireland Office is very small and consequently we cannot provide further information in order to respect the privacy of the individuals concerned.
Where staff are classed as without post, the Department ensures that the individuals concerned receive active support to help them find a post quickly. Access to vacancy information within the Department, other Northern Ireland Departments and across Whitehall Departments is provided and while without posts the Department ensures that the staff are actively engaged in temporary tasks or project work.
Bob Spink: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what estimate he has made of the average pay per hour worked by (a) permanent and (b) temporary staff in his Department in the last period for which figures are available, broken down by pay band. 
Mr. Woodward: The estimate of the average pay per hour worked by (a) permanent and (b) temporary staff in the Northern Ireland Office for the 2007-08 financial year, for which figures are available, are shown in the following table.
|Grade||Permanent hourly rate||Temporary hourly rate|
Temporary and permanent staff are paid from the same pay scales but fluctuations in average amounts paid may occur for a number of reasons. For example, if there are a large number of permanent staff with long service who are in the upper reaches of the pay band then the average amount paid to temporary staff, in the same grade, will be lower. Similarly if there are a large number of staff with short service in the lower reaches of the pay band and temporary staff have negotiated starting salaries based on increased skills and experience, the temporary staff average will be higher. There are no temporary D1 staff and we do not hold average pay for hours worked for senior civil service staff as they do not work contracted hours.
