The average working days lost for each HMRC employee based in Scotland are as follows:

1 April 2018 – 31 March 2019: 7.25 days

1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020: 7.50 days

In the time available, it has not been possible to provide the information requested for earlier years. I will write to the Honourable Member with the further information requested in due course, and I will place a copy of the letter in the Library of the House.

The average working days lost for all HMRC employees over the three earlier years are as follows:

1 April 2015 – 31 March 2016: 7.58 days

1 April 2016 – 31 March 2017: 6.86 days

1 April 2017 – 31 March 2018: 6.89 days
