Volume 698: debated on Monday 4 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What guidance, proposals or instructions have been issued or what arrangements have been made to ensure that the staffing of Ministers' private offices reflects the proportion of ethnic minorities in the Civil Service or in the United Kingdom. [HL1380]

All departments and agencies are taking forward action through the 10-point plan on delivering a diverse Civil Service to ensure that the Civil Service is as representative as possible of the wider population.
