Departmental Working Hours

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Minister for Women and Equality how many days off in lieu were granted to staff in the Government Equalities Office for working (a) in lunch breaks and (b) at other times outside contracted working hours, in the last year for which figures are available. (252028)

The calculation could be made only at disproportionate cost. The Government Equalities Office does not keep a central record of how many days off in lieu were granted to staff for working in lunch breaks and at other times. Records are held by individual members of staff and their line managers. Time off in lieu has to be authorised by managers, and be within parameters set out in GEO's terms and conditions.
