HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 c181W
Mrs. Dunwoody

asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will publish the results of the Civil Service Commission scheme to monitor the departmental recruitment of ethnic minorities.

Mr. Luce

The ethnic monitoring being carried out by the Civil Service Commission is of its own recruitment schemes only. Monitoring of departmental recruitment is being carried out by Departments individually.

The results of the first year of the Commission's monitoring of executive officer recruitment will be made public within the next few months once the candidates covered by this monitoring have passed through the selection process and the analysis of their progress has been completed. The results of the first year's monitoring of other Commission recruitment schemes will be made public in the Civil Service Commissioners' annual report for 1987.
