Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many complaints of bullying were made in the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister in 2005-06; and how many cases were upheld. (78336)

Staff are encouraged to seek an informal resolution of all matters in dispute with the individual and their line manager. Where it is not possible to resolve informally, complaints of bullying are dealt with under the Department’s complaints and grievances procedures. Information on the number of cases dealt with is not collected centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
