Departmental Flexible Working

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many and what proportion of staff in his Department and its predecessors had flexible working arrangements in each year since 1997. (200578)

Since 1997, all staff in the Department and its predecessors have had the opportunity to work flexibly. A very high proportion of staff have made use of the opportunity, including the 15 per cent. who work part-time and the over 50 per cent. who have occasionally or regularly worked at home over the last 12 months.

We do not keep records of exact figures centrally and they could be produced only at disproportionate cost.
