Civil Service Appeal Board

Volume 473: debated on Thursday 13 March 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many and what percentage of appeals by employees of (a) his Department and (b) its agencies were (i) heard and (ii) upheld by the civil service appeal board in each of the last 10 years; how much was awarded in compensation by the board to each successful appellant in each year; what the reason was for each compensation award; how many appellants were reinstated by the board in each year; and what the reason was for each (A) dismissal and (B) reinstatement. (192518)

Statistics on numbers of appeals heard in individual Departments and agencies for each of the last 10 years can be found in appendix 2 of each of the civil service appeal board's annual reports. These are available on the board's website at:

Copies are also available in the Library of the House.

The Cabinet Office does not centrally record information on appeal cases, and so the information requested on the outcome of the appeal, compensation awards or cases of reinstatement could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
