HC Deb 09 February 2001 vol 362 c707W
Mr. Burnett

To ask the Solicitor-General when he proposes to conduct another survey into the morale of the Crown Prosecution Service; and if he will place details of the survey in the Library. [R] [149692]

The Solicitor-General

The CPS conducted its first staff attitude survey and stress audit in mid-2000. As a result, the CPS board agreed a number of measures to improve morale. Substantial additional resources available to the CPS next year will build on work that has already been done to alleviate the causes of stress.

The CPS recently published its commitment regularly to assess staff attitudes in its 2001–02 business plan and proposes to run further surveys to establish how staff perceptions have changed on a comparative basis. The next survey is planned for 2002, but no decisions have yet been made on the exact scope, extent or distribution arrangements for that survey.
