HC Deb 02 May 1995 vol 259 c150W
Mr. Milburn

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the individual value of each(a) compulsory early retirement and (b) flexible early retirement package received by civil servants leaving his Department on grounds of limited efficiency in each of the last five years. [22086]

Mr. Goodlad

Compensation payments for early retirement on grounds of limited efficiency are age, salary and service related. In the Overseas Development Association no early retirements on grounds of limited efficiency have been made during the last five years. The relevant information for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
