London Weighting was removed as a centrally set allowance for civil servants in 1996 when full pay delegation was introduced across the Civil Service. Pay arrangements, including pay ranges for London based staff in my department, are set by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), who provide employment services for the Wales Office.

Flexible working is a fundamental element of the Civil Service employment offer, which is consistent with other sectors. Wales Office staff decide their working arrangements based on business needs and in accordance with the department’s Hybrid Working Policy.
