My Department already publishes data on staff composition by gender in its Annual Report and Accounts and is working to build a diverse and inclusive workforce at all levels. The Northern Ireland Office is aligned to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) terms and conditions in respect of pay policy. The MoJ collects gender pay gap data and plans to publish information on the gender pay gap amongst its employees in line with legislation. My Department currently employs fewer than 150 staff and is therefore not required to publish this data, but I will give consideration to its publication in due course.
