Dear FOI officer,

I should like to request the following information:

1) With respect to the Department’s terms and conditions of employment, the current policy in relation to public and privilege holidays that fall during a period of maternity, paternity or adoption leave

2) Any prior policy pertaining to public and privilege holidays that fall during a period of maternity, paternity or adoption leave

3) The date the previous policy was amended to the current policy

4) Any internal correspondence and documents relating to an amendment to this policy - in particular any correspondence providing an explanation for changing policy (e.g. Bulletin 42, issued by the Cabinet Office in September 2011 )

I should prefer to receive these in electronic format at this email address.

It would be helpful if you were to provide any brief notes which might be necessary to understand the context of the information provided, although I recognise that you are not obliged to do this.

If for any reason you feel this request is unclear, please do not hesitate to contact me at this email address. If you are not the appropriate authority for this request, or for part of it, please let me know as soon as is convenient.

Could you please let me know if you are able to provide this information for the agencies and public bodies the Department works with, or whether I should submit requests to them directly.

If the information requested contains sections of confidential information, please blank out or remove these sections, and mark clearly that they have been removed.

Thank you for your help.
