Departmental Publications

Volume 474: debated on Monday 21 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what guidance is issued to members of her Department on the authorship and publication on the internet of material relating to their official duties; and if she will make a statement. (196741)

The Civil Service Code, the Civil Service Management Code and Propriety Guidance on Government Communications, all provide guidance to staff on the publication of material relating to their official duties. Copies of each of these are in the Library of the House. They are also available on the Cabinet Office website at:

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if she will place in the Library an electronic copy of the most recent edition of her Department’s staff handbook. (199142)

Our staff handbook has been developed as an interactive publication delivered through the Department’s intranet. It is not held in a format which allows it to be easily exported and therefore could be provided only at a disproportionate cost.
