To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, how many Sikhs are employed in his Department; and whether they are recorded as (a) an ethnic or (b) a religious group.
Based on the self-declaration rates held on our system at the time of this question, none have declared as Sikh. This figure is based entirely on people identifying themselves as a Sikh on the Department’s HR system. The option to declare as Sikh is categorised under Religion.
The Department for Exiting the European Union is committed to the creation of a diverse and inclusive working environment to ensure staff do not face any barriers to success, and all staff feel supported at work.
