To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, what proportion of senior civil servants of his Department are (a) men, (b) women, (c) disabled, (d) from working-class backgrounds and (e) from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds
* as at 12 January 2017
This data is based on the self-declared information of the senior civil servants, and therefore may not be truly representative.
Data on the social background of our senior civil servants is not held centrally. To capture and analyse this would incur disproportionate costs.
