Departmental Public Expenditure

Chris Ruane: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much her Department has spent on targeted initiatives in (a) inner cities, (b) rural areas and (c) seaside towns in each of the last 16 years. [235702]

Meg Hillier: Home Office accounting systems do not hold the information in the form required by the question.

Departmental Sick Leave

Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many of her Department’s staff took more than (a) five, (b) 10, (c) 15, (d) 20, (e) 25, (f) 30, (g) 35 and (h) 40 days leave due to stress in each of the last five years, broken down by pay grade. [198978]

Mr. Woolas: The Home Office staff sickness tables from 2003-04 to 2007-08 are shown in the following tables.

The information is drawn from Home Office HQ, United Kingdom Border Agency (UKBA) and Identity and Passport Service (IPS) personnel information management system, respectively. The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) is unable to provide a response without incurring disproportionate cost.

Home Office and UKBA’s data before 2005 is unavailable due to data migration to a new system which is reflected in the lower 2003-04 and 2004-05 figures. Calculations are based on a 12-month rolling period for an accurate representation of working days lost to stress-related sickness within each year.

In 2006-07, the Home Office HQ included the following Departments: Communities Group, NOMS and OCJR, which have now all transferred following machinery of government changes. NOMS and OCJR left in May 2007 to join Ministry of Justice, and therefore have been included for year 2005-06 and 2006-07. Communities Group transferred to DCLG in May 2006 and is included in year 2005-06 sickness calculation.
