HC Deb 21 April 2004 vol 420 cc526-7W
Bob Spink

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the requirements are on officials in his Department to declare current interests; and what register of interests is kept for his departmental officials. [164708]

Fiona Mactaggart

The Civil Service Management Code sets out the requirement for civil servants declaring any conflict of interest. The Home Office monitor declarations of interest annually, by written request. Replies are then kept in a register. All new senior staff are made aware on appointment of their duty to declare any conflicts of interest.
