Just in case you were wondering, you know those different regional "Government Office of..." that exist across the country and are essentially quangos as part of the regionalisation requirements for the EU? Well guess what. They cost a lot of money. For example, the Government Office of the South West, which employs 273 people cost £14,684,860 to run last year. Next year the staffing costs alone are expected to be £10.51 million.
It doesn't take a maths genius to see that doesn't actually leave them with very much money to spend when their staffing costs account for over 70% of their actually spending. There are eight other Government Offices in the country and the total staffing costs is a mere £93.75 million. What a bargain!
