answer text <p>PICT hold records of all contractors who have left PICT since April 2012. Since contractors are not employees – but employed via an agency or their own Limited Company – any records kept are brief. It is not usual practice to provide references and as a result, reasons for their departure are not recorded.</p><p>The number of contractors whose contracts ended during this period has been follows:</p><p>2012/13 – 29<br>2013/14 – 48<br>2014/15 (to 30 June) – 57</p> more like this

answer text <p>There are around 800 third party suppliers of services to the House of Commons and given system changes in recent years it would involve disproportionate cost to derive precise figures of contract expenditure by financial year. It is estimated that expenditure has broadly been equivalent to:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Amount (£m)</p></td><td><p>Proportion of spend (%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2009/10</p></td><td><p>92.7</p></td><td><p>32.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010/11</p></td><td><p>87.4</p></td><td><p>47.4</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011/12</p></td><td><p>90.7</p></td><td><p>43.1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012/13</p></td><td><p>89.0</p></td><td><p>40.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>83.7</p></td><td><p>37.0</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>For 2014/15 the planned amount is around £100 million which represents 40.8% of the combined capital and resource budget.</p> more like this
