Departmental Disciplinary Proceedings

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many (a) disciplinary and (b) capability procedures have been (i) initiated and (ii) completed in her Department in each of the last five years; how much time on average was taken to complete each type of procedure in each such year; how many and what proportion of her Department’s staff were subject to each type of procedures in each such year; and how many and what proportion of each type of procedure resulted in the dismissal of the member of staff. (320633)

Information is not held centrally for capability procedures or disciplinary procedures which are managed by units. To obtain the information and calculate the time taken to complete these cases would require a request to each manager within the Cabinet Office and therefore represents a disproportionate cost.

It is Cabinet Office policy not to report information which may identify individuals, and therefore the data for dismissals have been withheld.
