To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many people took sick leave for stress in her Department in the last 12 months; and what percentage of the total staff number this represents. (135479)

During the period from 1 May 2006 to 30 April 2007 32 members of staff in the Department for Communities and Local Government (and the predecessor Department the Office for the Deputy Prime Minister) took sick leave for stress. This represents about 1 per cent. of the average number of staff during that period.
