HC Deb 12 May 2003 vol 405 c1W
Mr. Paul Marsden

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what arrangements are made in his Department to allow staff to access counselling services. [111942]

Mr. Alexander

The Cabinet Office is committed to supporting its staff and provides an in-house staff counselling and support service which offers short-term counselling, information and advice on work and non-work related issues for all employees.

A contract has also been put in place to provide access to external counselling in individual cases where in house provision would not be possible or appropriate.
