To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many claims have been made against (a) her Department and (b) its agencies under the Sex Discrimination Act since 2002; and what the outcome of each case was. (155707)

Since the Department for Communities and Local Government came into being in May 2006, three sex discrimination cases have been brought against it or its agencies under the Sex Discrimination Act. Two were withdrawn after agreement was reached without admission of liability by the Department. The third was withdrawn by the claimant.
