To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office what estimate he has made of the cost to the public purse of equality and diversity training in the public sector in the last year for which figures are available; and if he will take steps to encourage efficiency savings of such expenditure.

Information on the cost of equality and diversity training across the public sector as a whole is not held centrally.

However the Government have taken steps to reduce the cost of generic learning and development by launching Civil Service Learning, a cross-Government resource that will centrally procure all generic learning and development for the civil service.

Equality and diversity training is part of this provision. As we continue to establish Civil Service Learning, an e-learning course will be provided to cover this area for all civil servants. No specific costs were incurred as it has been developed in-house by staff in HMRC.
