- Executive grades: 29–11 per cent.—Asian; 46–18 per cent.— Afro-Caribbean
- Administration and Support grades: 34–12 per cent.—Asian; 58–21 per cent.—Afro-Caribbean1 Figure five or fewer.2 These figures refer only to the Commission for Racial Equality as this is the only NDPB that currently employs ethnic minorities in senior grades.
