Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development how many (a) black and Asian and (b) other people are employed in his Department's press office. (74354)

There are seven staff in DFID's Press Office. Information on staff ethnic origin is voluntary. We do hold information on the ethnicity of staff in the Private Office. However, there are fewer than five ethnic minority staff in the Press Office and where the figures are less than five, it is normal practice not to divulge the number of staff in a particular category on grounds of confidentiality.
