Ms Gallagher

: The answer to Mr Pratt's question is:

As with all other departmental staff, government school teachers' leave for health related matters; caring responsibilities; and special reasons is recorded as personal leave. The department is therefore not able to identify specific medical conditions, including stress, as a reason for teachers taking personal leave.

The department does not have access to leave records for teachers in non-government schools.

The number of claims for a stress related illness from government school teachers and accepted by Comcare is:

2001

13

2002

14

2003(to date)

10

The department does not have access to this information for teachers in non-government schools.
