Written answers (Question to Employment)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 555 to 557, inclusive, together.

The Government are implementing transformational reforms under the Civil Service Renewal agenda. A key commitment in the Civil Service Renewal Plan is to maximise the contribution of all staff, by nurturing and rewarding talent and by encouraging civil servants to develop their potential in a workplace committed to equality and diversity. The gender balance policy measures have been endorsed by the Government and are framed around practical HR and organisational considerations. Measures such as a target of 50/50 gender balance in appointments at senior levels are now in place.

The following tables provide the number of male and female officers (full time equivalents) in my Department and its agencies broken down by grade. The ratio of female to male officers for each grade is also provided.
