To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many staff in the Cabinet Office have taken time off from work in order to attend to domestic incidents as provided for by the Employment Relations Act 1999. [108344]

Time off to attend to domestic incidents is covered by the Cabinet Office's provisions for special leave (paid and unpaid). All special leave applications have to be approved in writing by line management. Records are not held centrally on numbers of staff who take special leave for specific purposes: this information could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
