To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what progress has been made in his Department and non departmental public bodies on implementing the requirements of the Race Relations Amendment Act 2000; and if he will publish the results of the monitoring required by the Act.[117468]

As part of our commitment to equality and diversity the Treasury published its Race Equality Scheme in May 2002. This identified a number of Treasury business priority areas relating to the requirements of the Race Relations Amendment Act 2000 including fiscal policy, improving the quality and cost effectiveness of public service provision and regulation of financial services. The Department will be reviewing progress on diversity this year and will report on our diversity objectives in our annual Departmental Report.
