To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what the absence rate has been for HMRC staff based in Scotland in each of the last five financial years.

Answered on

24 September 2020

The average working days lost for each HMRC employee based in Scotland are as follows:

1 April 2018 – 31 March 2019: 7.25 days

1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020: 7.50 days

In the time available, it has not been possible to provide the information requested for earlier years. I will write to the Honourable Member with the further information requested in due course, and I will place a copy of the letter in the Library of the House.

The average working days lost for all HMRC employees over the three earlier years are as follows:

1 April 2015 – 31 March 2016: 7.58 days

1 April 2016 – 31 March 2017: 6.86 days

1 April 2017 – 31 March 2018: 6.89 days
