Police: Harassment

Volume 508: debated on Tuesday 23 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many incidents of harassment in the workplace were reported by employees of (a) police services and (b) his Department in each of the last 10 years. (321438)

Information on the number of incidents of harassment in the workplace in the police service is not collected centrally.

Information prior to the 2005-06 financial year is not held centrally within the Home Office (excluding its agencies) and could be provided only at a disproportionate cost. We are unable to provide information in relation to the number of allegations of harassment within Home Office HQ in each year since 2005-06 as there were fewer than five cases in each year. Further information is therefore withheld on grounds of confidentiality.
