Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what proportion of his staff dealing with universities hold a university degree. (178198)

DIUS staff records are not yet kept on a single database system. Until this is the case, staff records are kept on systems in BERR and DCSF, depending on which Department the individual transferred from.

There have been no formal processes in the two Departments for gathering, validating and maintaining such records. It is therefore likely that any answer given could not be guaranteed to be accurate.
