HL Deb 29 November 1982 vol 436 c1130WA
Lord O'Hagan

asked Her Majesty's Government: When the report on the pilot ethnic survey of some non-industrial civil servants in Leeds will be published.

Baroness Young

I am pleased to tell my noble friend that Volume 1 of a report entitledEthnic Monitoring in the Civil Service: A Survey in Leeds is published today. Copies have been placed in the Library. This volume covers the survey of the ethnic origins of some 3,900 civil servants in Leeds. Of those issued with the questionnaire 92.2 per cent. completed the ethnic origin question. Of those, 2.1 per cent. were from the ethnic minorities.

The results of the job applicant part of the survey, which was undertaken during the period from 1 st May to 30th September, will be published as Volume 2 early in 1983. The Government will consider further the implications of the survey once the results of the second part of the survey are known.
