It would appear that the Department of Trade and Industry - now called the Department of Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform - has become an increasingly stressful place to work over the past few years.
Apparently, in 2004-05, of the people off work with illness, 5.6% were off due to stress-related problems. However, the following year, under the leadership of Alan Johnson the renamed for a week Department for Productivity, Energy and Industry saw the figure double to 11.5%.
Johnson wasn't there for long though, and in 2006 Alastair Darling took over from him. A new regime, less stress? No. Under Darling's leadership the figure almost doubled again to 19.8%. I bet they were pleased when he sodded off to the Treasury.
The real question is whether John Hutton can de-stress the place?
