HC Deb 09 February 1984 vol 53 c788W
Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Wales when he last carried out an analysis of information required for ethnic monitoring of his Departments; and whether he proposes to take steps within his Department to comply with the monitoring provisions of the Commission for Racial Equality's code on ethnic monitoring.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

None at present. My Department is not represented in the north-west and county of Avon, in which surveys of the ethnic origins of non-industrial civil servants are being undertaken as announced by my hon. Friend, the Minister of State, Treasury in the House on 24 March 1983. The Government will need to decide how to proceed once the results of these surveys are known.—[Vol. 39, c.461.]
