Hundreds of civil servants will never have to return to the office after being allowed to work from home permanently.

Official figures show the number of Government employees on special ‘home-working’ contracts has almost tripled since the pandemic.

There were 183 home workers across eight of the main Whitehall departments in 2019-20, rising to 309 the following year and 530 in 2021-22.

The biggest increase was in the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), where the number rose from 117 before Covid struck to 380 earlier this year. 

In the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) the number rose from 14 to 60 over the same period.
