The Ministry of Justice, across its business areas, is working to ensure that equality of opportunity and diversity are a normal part of everyday business. As an employer, the Ministry seeks to ensure that its policies are fair and accessible to all. In addition, the Ministry seeks to provide its services in a way that complies with the aims of the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010.

The information requested however is not collected or held centrally and could not be provided other than at a disproportionate cost as it would mean contacting every establishment and agency to request what is potentially wide ranging information.
