Departmental Dress Code

Volume 450: debated on Wednesday 25 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what his Department's policy is on the display of religious (a) artefacts, (b) symbols and (c) dress by its staff; how many staff have been subject to disciplinary proceedings regarding this policy in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. (95642)

The Wales Office does not have a formal dress code. Staff are expected to present a smart/professional appearance while at work or conducting official business. Where an employee's religion requires them observe a particular dress code, this is respected.

No Wales Office staff have been subject to disciplinary proceedings on the basis of dress.
