Mr. Stephen Mulvany:

The target was to increase between the start of 2020 and the end of 2021 by a total of 16,000. Across those two years it went up, as Mr Reid said, by about 12,000. The target for 2022 is to recruit 10,000 staff, including an element of those not recruited from the earlier target.
