HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 cc936-7W
Mr. Tynan

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if her Department has applied for a Castle award. [57605]

Mr. Morley

[holding answer 22 May 2002]: DEFRA has not applied for a Castle Award this year. However, we take the issues of pay equality very seriously and have already completed some very thorough Equal Pay Audits in preparation for modernising our pay system. We are also planning to carry out an Equal Pay Review later this year.
