Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 22 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills how many claims for discrimination, based on (a) sex, (b) race and (c) sexual orientation, were brought by members of his Department and its predecessor and settled (i) in and (ii) out of court in each of the last five years. (194983)

It is not possible to provide information for the entirety of the period in question because my Department was created as part of the Machinery of Government changes on 28 June 2007. However, in the period since the Department was formed there have been no claims of discrimination based on gender, race or sexual orientation.
