Holding answer received on 15 December 2014

The Department does not monitor the gender, disability or ethnic composition of its executive board separately from monitoring the Department as a whole. Even if it did, gender, disability and ethnicity identity is sensitive personal data as defined by section 2 of the Data Protection Act 1998. Given the small numbers involved, we could not disclose the results of such general monitoring without infringing the rights of the individuals concerned.
