§ 40. Mr. Janner
asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he is satisfied with the present monitoring of equal opportunity policy among civil servants.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
Yes. We are continuing to ensure that there is full equality of opportunity in the Civil Service. Surveys of the ethnic origin of non-industrial civil servants in the north west and county of Avon are progressing well. And as regards equal opportunities for women we hope shortly to announce our programme of action to follow up the report of the joint review group. I therefore believe our present arrangements for such monitoring are generally satisfactory but I am always willing to consider suggestions for improvement.
