[holding answer 3 December 2007]: The Government Equalities Office is a Government Department in its own right; support services are currently provided by the Department for Work and Pensions. Barbara Follett supports the Minister for Women and Equality (Ms Harman) across the range of equalities issues. A revised list of ministerial responsibilities was published by my right hon. Friend the Minister for the Cabinet Office (Edward Miliband) on 18 October 2007. Copies have been placed in the Vote Office and the Libraries of the House. The list can also be accessed at:
