HC Deb 12 February 1990 vol 167 c9W
Mr. Norris

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of the extent of preventable loss arising from theft or misappropriation in his Department.

Mr. Peter Walker

In the year 1988–89 there were two cases of theft or misappropriation in the Welsh Office totalling £1,255. Any loss from theft or misappropriation is examined thoroughly and the lessons learned are used to strengthen systems to deter further fraud.

Mr. Norris

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will list the number of professionally qualified loss-prevention staff employed by his Department and the qualifications held by such staff, excluding qualifications obtained during police or military service.

Mr. Peter Walker

It is the responsibility of all staff to prevent the misappropriation of funds. The following staff in my Department have a major role in aiding loss prevention through audit work.

  • 2 FCA
  • 3 CIPFA
  • 1 AAT
  • 4 MIIA
