To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many staff in his Department have taken time off from work in order to attend to domestic incidents as provided for by the Employment Relations Act 1999. [108341]

In the Treasury, staff are allowed up to 10 days paid special leave in any one annual leave year for reasons of grave concern to the member of staff that can only be dealt with them in person e.g. the care of a sick dependant or a domestic emergency. Central records are not kept on the amounts of special leave taken in these circumstances.
