Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government: Brexit

Question for Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government

UIN 5024, tabled on 24 October 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, how many of his staff, by grade, who volunteered for shift working at the Departmental Operations Centre have been rejected because the Department needs to retain them in their current roles.

Answered on

29 October 2019

No member of staff who has volunteered to work shifts has been rejected because the Department needs to retain them in their current role. Volunteers for shift working were sought from those individuals either already working in the DOC or already assigned to a DOC team and therefore the possibility of rejecting volunteers because they need to be retained in their current role did not arise.
