Volume 456: debated on Monday 29 January 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what arrangements are in place to allow civil servants facing redundancy in one Government Department to transfer to another; and if she will make a statement. (111655)

The Government have put in place a common framework to support Departments, in their handling of staff facing redundancy to maximise redeployment opportunities and to minimise recourse to compulsory redundancies. In support of this process, a vacancy handling database has been developed to give affected staff priority access to vacancies across other Government Departments.
