It will be seen that the overall budget ceiling for my Department has increased by 22% between 2014 and 2019 while the total number of staff has increased by 8% (or 9.8% FTEs). The increase reflects the additional demands being placed on my Department and its offices, not least from the challenges arising from Brexit.
