To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, how many staff in his Department reported their religion as Islam in the latest period for which figures are available; what the reported ethnicity of those staff was; and how many of those staff were employed at each grade.

The Office of the Secretary of State for Wales is not an employer in its own right. The Ministry of Justice is the employer of staff working in the Office. As at 30 September 2019, fewer than five staff had recorded Muslim as their religion or belief. To protect the identification of staff, an exact number cannot therefore be provided nor their ethnicity or grade disclosed.
