Mr. John D. Taylor
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many new members of staff have been appointed to the Fair Employment Commission since 1 January 1991; and how many of them were(a) Protestants, (b) Roman Catholics and (c) other religions.
§ Mr. Needham
The commission has declared its intention to make monitoring information available on a yearly basis. To make such information available more frequently and covering shorter periods could infringe the confidentiality requirements of the Fair Employment Acts by disclosing the religious beliefs of identifiable individuals.
