Seven employees have been disciplined for bullying and harassment in the last three years. One employee was disciplined in 2007, five employees were disciplined in 2008, and one employee has been disciplined in 2009.

DEFRA'S procedures do not differentiate between bullying and harassment so I am unable to provide a further breakdown.
