answer text <p>The Department for Exiting the European Union is committed to the creation of a diverse and inclusive working environment. Based on the self-declaration rates held on our system, the number of BAME staff employed in each grade group, and as a proportion of the staff in that grade who have made a declaration, is as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Grade</p></td><td><p>Number (proportion)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Band A (Grade 7 equivalent)</p></td><td><p>20 (13.6%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Band A+ (Grade 6 equivalent)</p></td><td><p>12 (19.6%)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>SCS1 (Grade 5 equivalent)</p></td><td><p>fewer than 5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>SCS2 (Grade 3 equivalent)</p></td><td><p>fewer than 5</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The Department has had success in attracting a diverse workforce at delegated grades (AO-G6 equivalent), and in particular our representation of BAME staff is one of the highest in government. Our priority is now to ensure we are representative at the most senior levels of the department focusing on processes such as talent, development, attraction and recruitment, as well as continuing to build an inclusive culture that celebrates uniqueness. These figures are based entirely on people identifying themselves as BAME on the Department’s HR system.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Government has been clear on the outcome it wants to achieve, which is to secure a mutually advantageous deal with the EU. However, we have already carried out very significant ‘no deal’ preparations for the unlikely event that we reach March 2019 without agreeing a deal. We have successfully passed critical legislation, signed international agreements, recruited additional staff and guaranteed certain EU funding in a ‘no deal’ scenario.</p><p>We have already published a series of over 100 technical notices so that businesses and citizens have time to prepare in the event of a 'no deal' scenario. These are available on gov.uk in a centralised location that is easy for people to access and use.</p><p> </p> more like this
