Please see response from HR below.

I ran a report effective 01/04/2015 and 27 people are working 37 hours, and 2 work less than that.

Out of those 29 people in Planning, 12 are definitely permanent, 1 is fixed term while the remaining 17 are not categorized.

For effective 01/04/2014, we had 24 people with 22 people working 37 hours and 2 working part time.

Out of those 24 people, only one was categorised as permanent with the rest uncategorised.

I would also like to know how many people working in your planning department have been formally disciplined or dismissed for misconduct since 2010, and in each case a summary of the reason.

Please see response from HR below.

This information is not held on our systems and only in personnel files so therefore it would not be possible to fulfil this request.
