Most of the people who work at Church House, Westminster are not employed solely by the Church Commissioners. Staff of the National Church Institutions (NCIs) which include the Church Commissioners are mostly employed jointly by the Institutions.

In that context I refer the Hon Gentleman to my previous answer to question 62530 answered on 06 February 2017 which stated that only NCI employees enjoy full access to our premises and that other groups have limited and time-limited access. These groups include diocesan bishops, members of General Synod, contractors and tenants.

A) To date the percentage of passes issued to NCIs staff is 56.24%

B) None of the staff of the NCIs are civil servants.
