§ 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. 
§ 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.
