Departmental Sick Leave

Volume 479: debated on Thursday 17 July 2008

To ask the Leader of the House (1) how many and what percentage of staff in her office have had more than two periods of sickness absence of less than five days in each of the last three years; (218713)

(2) how many staff in her Office have had five or more periods of sickness absence of less than five days in two or more of the last five years.

Data held by the Cabinet Office indicated that in 2007 there were no staff in the Leader's Office who had more than two periods of sickness absence of less than five days.

The number of staff with periods of sick absence lasting less than five days for the calendar year 2006 is already a matter of public record.

Sickness absence information for the previous years is not available in the form requested and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
