Dear Hounslow Borough Council,

My enquiry concerns Article 45 of the Treaty of Rome, associated Treaties (e.g. Lisbon), Directives and Resolutions (including where required conversion and incorporation into UK legislation) as applied to citizen’s of core EU membership (pre-2004) countries , countries which acceded in 2004 and those that acceded in 2007. My questions also focus on the recruitment of overseas trained social workers.

1. Have you policies and procedures concerning recruitment been reviewed and revised in relation to such Treaties, Directives and Resolutions flowing from Article 45 to reflect transitional arrangements for citizens of 2004 and 2007 accession countries and, if so, how and when?
2. What is your policy on equivalence of qualification and experience when determining salaries and conditions of service for citizens of such countries?
3. How do you reflect Article 45 etc when it comes to expenses for those resident in other countries of the European Union to attend interview and, if successful, relocation packages?
4. If you have undertaken structured recruitment of qualified social workers from outside of the European Union since the beginning of 2004 what steps were taken, if any, to access the resident (European) labour market? If you consider you were exempt from doing so why was this the case?

Yours faithfully,

Charles Bell

Dear Mr Bell

I apologise for the late response to your request for information. On checking back it is clear that this delay has occurred because of a lack of communication between officers about who was going to gather the information required. I will endeavour to get an answer to you by the end of the week.
