To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what percentage of (a) white and (b) non-white staff received the highest performance marking in the core business units of (i) the Department for Environment, Transport and the Regions and (ii) the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions in each year between 1997 and 2006. (282959)

I have been asked to reply.

The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) and the Department for Transport were formed in 2002, from the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions. ODPM then became the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) in 2006. CLG does not hold any data on performance management markings before 2002.

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what percentage of (a) white and (b) non-white staff received the highest performance mark in his Department's 2008-09 reporting round. (282960)

The Department for Transport line management are in the process of meeting all permanent staff to deliver annual performance management reviews. Once this process is completed, the results will be collated and published as part of the Department’s annual equality monitoring duties. The Department expects to finalise this process by November 2009.
