To ask the Minister for Women and Equality how many and what proportion of staff of the Government Equalities Office work flexibly or part-time; and what her Office's policy is on making jobs available on a job-share or flexible basis. (301342)

The Government Equalities Office (GEO) operates a flexible working policy which is available to all staff and this is offered on all job vacancies. We currently have six staff who work part-time and this equates to 5.5 per cent. of our work force.
