Between November 2012 and September 2013 our central records show that 1,345 paid days were spent by union representatives on such activities. These central records are based on returns submitted by union representatives to account for the time they have spent on their union roles. Information on the amount of paid time spent on trade union activities prior to November 2012 could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>Since October 2013 the Department has not permitted members of staff elected as union representatives to be granted paid facility time for any trade union activities and in future will only grant paid facility time for such activities in exceptional circumstances and with approval from the Secretary of State. In line with our legal obligations members of staff elected as union representatives are able to request time away from their work to undertake trade union activities but any time off granted for this purpose will be unpaid.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>These recommendations were put forward by Sir Michael Pitt following the floods of summer 2007 as part of the independent Pitt Review. This review included 92 recommendations aimed at improving the way the risk of flooding is managed in the UK. The final progress report on the implementation of these recommendations was published on 27 January 2012. The full report can be found on GOV.UK here:</p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-s-response-to-sir-michael-pitts-review-of-the-summer-2007-floods-final-progress-report" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-s-response-to-sir-michael-pitts-review-of-the-summer-2007-floods-final-progress-report</a></p><p>Since the Pitt Review was published in 2008, Cabinet Office, working with other Government Departments, has followed a systematic programme to enhance the resilience of the UK. As such the majority of recommendations made by Sir Michael Pitt have now been implemented. This includes the production of Sector Resilience Plans, classified documents which have been annually since 2010, the establishment of a Cabinet Committee on Flooding, and ongoing work with industry and local resilience forums to ensure essential services can continue in the face of disruptive challenges, including worst case flooding events.</p><p> </p>
