Information requested
 

You asked for, “I've been trying to find out staff numbers for the PCO (and here I'm only interested in parliamentary counsel, rather than administrative staff, although I recognise HR may not make those distinctions).

Do you have statistics for staff numbers over the period 1999-2018? I would be happy with snapshots, eg., 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2016, if this is at all possible.” 

Response
 
I enclose a copy of the information you requested.
