Reasoning
It was reported in January 2009 that 4,600 civil servants are employed without posts. Some of them still draw full salaries even though their areas of responsibility no longer exist. This includes over 2,800 in Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, over 800 in the Ministry of Defence and more than 200 in the Foreign Office. Most amazing is the figure in the Department for Work and Pensions, where a reported 368 staff are paid for doing no work when they should be helping others to find work. The total annual bill to the taxpayer to pay these civil servants is estimated as £130 million. This situation has been described as ‘a scandal’ by the Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude. However, the Cabinet Office Minister Tom Watson has defended the figures, claiming that they include mothers returning from maternity leave who are waiting to be assigned to a new job and employees on short-term projects.
