Compensation Payments

Volume 456: debated on Tuesday 6 February 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster pursuant to the answer of 18 December 2006, Official Report, column 1517W, on compensation payments, what the nature was of the cases involving (a) the accident at work, (b) the purchase of land and (c) cancellation fees/expenses; and whether any of the special payments were caused by IT failure. (118865)

The nature of the cases mentioned in my reply to the hon. Gentleman’s earlier question is as follows:

(a) an injury to an employee as a result of a fall in one of my Department's offices;

(b) the use of land for security purposes; and

(c) two separate cases when individual employees needed to cancel personal engagements, incurring expenses as a result, due to essential work commitments.

I can confirm that none of the special payments made were caused by IT failure.
