Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Royall of Blaisdon on 4 November (WA 84), why details are not available of facility time for staff on trade union business in the Northern Ireland Office. [HL745]

Currently, facility time for trade union representatives is delegated to local line management and details are not held centrally. However, the Northern Ireland Office (NIO) will be recording facility time centrally from 1 January 2010.
