Volume 448: debated on Monday 3 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions how much his Department has spent on adaptations and equipment for disabled members of staff in each year since 2003. (79933)

Any DWP employee requiring equipment and adaptations receives the support they need to undertake their duties. Information on the amount spent by the Department on equipment and adaptations for disabled staff is not collected. Currently, costs are attributed to individual local budgets relevant to the individual employee and are included in the overall costs of furniture/equipment within that business unit.
