I would like to refer the noble Baroness to the tables on gender pay gaps as set out in the Civil Service Statistics, Table 27, which is provided at the following link at www. statistics.gov.uk/downloads/theme_labour/CivilService_tables_200 8.xls.

Information on ethnicity and disability in the Civil Service can also be found at the above link in Table 25, median earnings by ethnicity, and Table 26, median earnings by disability.

The information requested in respect of race and disability in the Ministry of Defence is not held centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
