Northern Ireland Office: Cars

Volume 716: debated on Thursday 7 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what percentage of officials in the Northern Ireland Office are in car-sharing schemes for work purposes which are officially encouraged. [HL870]

A scheme is available at www.travelwiseni.co.uk through which staff can make car-share arrangements with other civil servants. Staff are encouraged, where possible, to car-share when travelling on official business.

The Northern Ireland Office does not keep statistics on the number of staff who are in car-share schemes, either for work purposes or for journeys to and from work.
