unstar this property answer text <p>The Department’s workforce statistics are published on a quarterly basis by the Office for National Statistics as part of its Quarterly Public Sector Employment estimates. Data for the two quarters in question, June 2016 and September 2018 (latest available quarterly release) can be viewed and obtained via the following link: <a href="https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/publicsectorpersonnel/datasets/publicsectoremploymentreferencetable" target="_blank">https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/publicsectorpersonnel/datasets/publicsectoremploymentreferencetable</a> (table 9) in the attached xlsx files for the dates in question.</p><p>At the end of June 2016 the Department employed a reported 1,420 full-time equivalent staff in comparison with 1,890 full-time equivalent staff at the end of September 2018. Please note that these figures are rounded to the nearest ten at the point of release and do not include the Department’s Executive Agencies or non-departmental public bodies (NDPB). The difference between the two reported numbers represents a 33 per cent increase in staffing levels during the period in question. It is important to note that in March 2010 there were 2109 full-time equivalent staff working in the Department.</p><p>Please note that the numbers reported to ONS are based on directly employed officials where the Department bears at least 50 per cent of salary costs through its payroll. Staff employed directly by the Department who are on an unpaid leave of absence, or paid on a reimbursed basis, are not included in management information published on GOV.UK and supplied to ONS.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>As Mark Lowcock, the UN Under Secretary General, explained to the UN Security Council on 23 October, Yemen’s recent economic crisis threatens to tip the country into famine, with the Yemeni Riyal losing over 40% of its value from June to October 2018.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The UK led discussions with the US, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates so the Central Bank of Yemen could release $270 million, provided by Saudi Arabia, in letters of credit to support commercial food importers with foreign currency to purchase wheat and other staples for import. These measures have resulted in an appreciation of the Riyal, and prices of staples are starting to decline which means that ordinary Yemenis are more able to buy food that is in the markets.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, much more remains to be done. We welcome the positive outcomes of consultations in Stockholm and continue to encourage further constructive and urgent engagement on the economy. A political settlement is the only way to bring long-term stability to Yemen and to address the worsening humanitarian crisis.</p><p> </p>
