Departmental Disciplinary Proceedings

Volume 493: debated on Thursday 4 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many members of staff in his Department were dismissed (a) for under-performance and (b) in total in each of the last 10 years. (274307)

In each of the last 10 years less than five members of staff were dismissed from the Department for International Development for under-performance.

Total dismissals in each year were also less than five, apart from in 2002 when six members of staff were dismissed and in 2006 when again six members of staff were dismissed in total.

Providing the specific numbers in each of the other years could potentially identify individuals concerned and so breach confidentiality.
