Departments: Redunancy

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how much was spent on (a) involuntary and (b) voluntary staff exit schemes in (i) his Department and (ii) each agency of the Department in each year since 1997-98; how much is planned to be spent for 2007-08; and if he will make a statement. (123868)

The Scotland Office was established on 1 July 1999.

The Office does not operate staff exit schemes. All staff in the Scotland Office are on loan from the Department of Constitutional Affairs or from the Scottish Executive and it is these Departments who would have operated any such schemes.
