I wish to advise the Deputy that the information sought cannot be provided in the time allowed. As soon as the information has been collated I will write to the Deputy on the matter.

The following deferred reply was received under Standing Order 42A
I refer to Parliamentary Question No. 137 in which the Deputy requested the number of staff in my Department by gender and pay grade in tabular form.
This year marks an important centenary for gender equality. The Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act of 1919 allowed women to enter the legal professions and the higher ranks of the civil service for the first time. My Department is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to initiatives that promote equality and foster diversity to ensure a fair workplace for all employees.
The information requested by the Deputy is included in the following table, which sets out the number of staff in my Department by gender and pay grade. It does not include staff in the agencies under the aegis of the Department.
