HC Deb 20 June 2003 vol 407 c497W
Angela Eagle

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what progress has been made on completing a pay audit in her Department and its non-departmental public bodies to measure any disadvantage in terms of remuneration for(a) women, (b) ethnic minorities and (c) people with disabilities; and if she will publish the results of such an audit.

DTI HQ, DTI Agencies and DTI NDPBs have all completed equal pay reviews. The majority, including DTI HQ, have focused on identifying any gender pay gaps that might exist but a number of the Agencies and NDPBs for which I have responsibility have additionally examined factors such as ethnicity, disability and age.

It is my intention to place copies of the action plans for DTI HQ and DTI Agencies in the Libraries of the House in due course.
