Departmental Disciplinary Proceedings

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many staff in his Department were disciplined for (a) bullying and (b) harassment of colleagues in each of the last three years. (254087)

The information is as follows:

In 2006, one member of staff was disciplined for bullying. None were disciplined for harassment.

In 2007, one member of staff was disciplined for bullying, one was disciplined for harassment.

In 2008, three members of staff were disciplined for combined bullying and harassment.

These records cover reported disciplinaries of UK-based staff. There are no central records held for locally-engaged staff. This information would be held locally at post and could only be retrieved with disproportionate cost.
