Written answers (Question to Public)

The provisions of the Code of Standards and Behaviour for Civil Servants apply to all established and unestablished civil servants. As the officials referred to in the Deputy's question were not appointed Civil Servants the provisions of the Code of Standards and Behaviour do not apply to them.
