To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to his Department's recently advertised roles which are paid, except in circumstances where the successful applicant already receives a salary for full-time work paid for from public funds, what assessment he has made of the effect of that policy on protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010.

With respect to Ministry of Justice public appointments (defined as posts regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments in the Order in Council 2017), we do not hold information on the salary arrangements of candidates who are employed in the public-sector.

Where appropriate, arrangements are made to ensure that an appointee may not receive a double payment from the public purse if they are already in receipt of a full-time public-sector salary, in addition to their public appointment role.

The Ministry of Justice has not conducted an assessment on the effects of this policy on those with protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 in respect of public appointments for which it is responsible.
