HC Deb 04 April 2003 vol 402 c876W
Mr. Yeo

To ask the President of the Council what policy on(a) core hours and (b) flexible working hours is operated by his Department. [107654]

Mr. Bradshaw

Where operationally appropriate, staff in the Privy Council Office may take advantage of flexible working hours. The flexible working day is between 7.30 and 18.30, for which core times are from 10.00 to 12.00 and from 14.00 to 16.00. A half-hour break should be taken between 12.00 and 14.00. Staff may build up excess hours of up to a day and half and work with a deficit of up to one day within any four-week 'flexi-time' accounting period. Flexi-leave to use up excess hours requires line management approval and is agreed where operationally possible.
