Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether her Department permits immigration officers to work (a) six-day weeks and (b) double shifts. (193129)

Immigration Officers do work double night shifts where necessary to meet operational demands. Six day weeks are performed on an exceptional basis.

Note:

“Immigration Officers” are purely those who held that particular grade during the period.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate her Department has made of the average number of hours worked per week by immigration officers in each year since 1997. (193131)
