Departmental Equality

Volume 475: debated on Wednesday 14 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether his Department met the civil service diversity targets set out on page 51 of Cabinet Office Annual Report 2007 by April 2008. (204713)

As a result of the establishment of the Ministry of Justice on 9 May 2007, we are currently in the process of revising our diversity targets for all under-represented groups. The MoJ is currently working with the Cabinet Office to agree new civil service-wide diversity targets.

The timetable for setting the MoJ's targets will be determined by guidance from the Cabinet Office, which is due late summer 2008.
