Departmental Homeworking

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many people in his Department have been authorised to work from home in the last 12 months. (189785)

169 civilian staff are recorded on the Department's central system (HRMS) as home workers. It is possible that under historic reporting arrangements there may be significantly more whose home working is not recorded centrally. 44 new formal home working arrangements were approved in the year from February 2007 to January 2008. Staff may also work from home on an occasional basis, but such arrangements are not recorded centrally.
