Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Royall of Blaisdon on 9 November (WA 117), whether a background was assigned using Equality Commission methods for the two commissioners who declared that they do not have a Protestant or Catholic community background. [HL104]

No. The Equality Commission's guidance to employers on monitoring employees and applicants for employment using the residuary method does not apply to public appointments made by the Secretary of State.
