Mr. Stephen Twigg

My Department has carried out a Gender Pay Equality Review in accordance with the commitment made by Government in response to the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) Task Force `Just Pay' Report.

Any matters arising from the Review will be taken forward as part of the 2003 pay negotiations within the Department which are due to start in May.
