Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

For the undermentioned "Jobcentre"s, I would like to request:
1) The total amount of expenditure incurred on staffing
2) The total number of staff (full-time and part-time) employed for the past five audited financial
years.
3) The total amount of expenditure incurred for the redistribution of money to all Jobcentre customers (the recipients)

Bury Jobcentre
Middleton Jobcentre

Also please may I ask how the following was calculated:
"This represents the estimated cost of one person spending 3½ working days in determining whether the Department holds the information, and locating, retrieving and extracting it."

Yours faithfully,

L M Fielding
