- Reports will also be laid before the Scottish Parliament by the First Minister for Scotland, and before the National Assembly for Wales by the First Minister for Wales
- Such a report must include details on the costs and numbers of civil servants by each government department and agency, and a comprehensive definition of the civil service of the state for that year.
