To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what the (a) mean and (b) median pay was for staff in his Department who were (i) male, (ii) female, (iii) white, (iv) from an ethnic minority background, (v) disabled and (vi) non-disabled in the most recent year for which information is available, broken down by (A) full-time and (B) part-time workers.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) was created on 14 July 2016. The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) were merged to create this new department.
The Civil Service publishes pay information including mean and median pay broken down by various characteristics for each department including DECC and BIS. The latest pay data was published in October last year and can be found on the Office for National Statistics website.
BEIS will contribute to the next release but could only provide the data in the requested format for both departments at disproportionate cost.
