Civil Service: Northern Ireland

Volume 687: debated on Tuesday 5 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is the community background of Northern Ireland civil servants who work in the North/South Ministerial sectoral in Armagh. [HL286]

Fourteen Northern Ireland civil servants work in the NSMC in Armagh. To provide a breakdown by community background of such a small group of staff would risk breaching the statutory requirement for confidentiality in fair employment monitoring legislation and would be contrary to the Data Protection Act.
