HC Deb 05 November 2001 vol 374 c62W
15. Dr. Starkey

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps she has taken to promote equal opportunities among the non-departmental public bodies which her Department funds. [10034]

Tessa Jowell

I am determined that the Boards of my Department's public bodies reflect the diversity of the society they serve and have set challenging targets for the representation of women, people from ethnic minority backgrounds and disabled people. We are currently reviewing our appointments equal opportunities action plan which is published annually, together with those of other Departments, in "Quangos-Opening up Public Appointments", which is deposited in the Libraries of both Houses.
