Compensation: Department for Work and Pensions

Volume 686: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much the Department for Work and Pensions has paid out in compensation to former employees in each of the past 10 years.[HL7791]

The Department for Work and Pensions does not hold the requested information centrally and it could be obtained only at disproportionate cost, as a physical search of individual archived cases both for the DWP and its precursor organisations would be required.
