To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what estimate he has made of the amount of unpaid overtime worked by staff in his Department in the last 24 months.
Neither the central department nor its executive agencies hold this information. The Department has a policy in place to support both paid overtime and flexi-time working for grades below Senior Civil Service. Any additional hours that are recorded are either paid via payroll as overtime or taken as time off in lieu. Staff are not required or expected to work unpaid overtime.
