Mr. Watson: The Department’s HR records do not include information on routes of entry into the civil service. To collect this information would exceed the disproportionate cost threshold.

Over the past five years the Department has recruited, on average, a total of 4-5 civil servants per year through the fast stream.

Statistics on intake into the fast stream as a whole are published annually at
