Departmental Disciplinary Proceedings

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 27 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many of his Department's civil servants have been (a) suspended and (b) dismissed for accessing (i) obscene and (ii) other prohibited material on work computers in each of the last five years. (188783)

DIUS was created by Machinery of Government changes in June 2007 from elements of the then Department of Trade and Industry and Department for Education and Skills. As a consequence it has not existed for the period covered in the question.

However in the period since DIUS was created no members of staff have been suspended and/or dismissed for such activities.
