I regret that the answer I gave to my hon. Friend on 16 July 2013, Hansard, columns 667-68W, was incomplete. The Department is able to estimate approximate costs for staff directly employed in equality and diversity related functions.

The previous reply also omitted the numbers of staff working in the national health service equality team in 2012-13 which are now added to the table. In addition, the Department spent a total of £2,171,396 from its programme budgets towards equality, diversity and human rights related work in 2010-11. In subsequent years, there was no programme spend.
