To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether the pay system in her Department has been changed to take account of the Employment Appeal Tribunal ruling on Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council v Mr G Willetts and Others on holiday pay and voluntary overtime; and whether affected workers in her Department have been given back pay as a result of that ruling.

The Home Office currently has a form of Holiday Pay allowance built into the pay system. The Home Office is aware of the Employment Appeal Tribunal referred to in the Question, and the implications for our approach to pay. The Department has signalled to the Trades Unions in Summer 2019 that it intends to open negotiations on this subject later in 2019. Decisions on back pay will be taken as part of the negotiations process.
