Question for Wales Office

UIN 121139, tabled on 26 November 2020

The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales (OSSW) is not an employer and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) provides employment services on our behalf. The MoJ does not actively promote credit unions and such schemes are usually promoted by the trade unions.

The MoJ offers financial wellbeing support and advice to staff as part of its wider employee benefits offer.
