star this property answer text <p>The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.</p><p>Dear Viscount Waverley,</p><p><br>As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am responding to your Parliamentary Question asking what the percentage breakdown of public sector employees is by (1) gender, and (2) ethnicity for each region of the United Kingdom (HL164444).</p><p><br>Estimates of employees by sector of employment are available from the Annual Population Survey (APS), a household survey of people in the UK. In the APS, the distinction between public and private sector is based on respondents’ views about the organisation for which they work. This may differ from how we would classify them for the headline measure of public sector employment. The APS also collects information regarding respondents’ sex and ethnicity.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1 contains estimates of the percentage of public sector employees broken down by sex within each region. Table 2 contains estimates of the percentage of public sector employees broken down by ethnicity within each region. Both breakdowns use APS data for April 2018 to March 2019, the latest period for which data are available.</p><p>As the data are quite extensive, copy of both tables have been placed in the House of Commons Library.</p><p><br>Yours sincerely,</p><p><br><strong>John Pullinger</strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Treasury regularly publishes detailed analysis on the cumulative impact of policy decisions on tax, welfare and public spending on households of different incomes. The government also carefully considers the impact of its decisions on those sharing protected characteristics - including at Budgets and other fiscal events - in line with both its legal obligations and with its strong commitment to promoting fairness.</p><p>Our statement concerning income sharing reflects our reservations about producing cumulative analysis of the impact of tax and spending decisions on vulnerable groups beneath household level (for instance, by gender). This analysis often requires unreasonable assumptions about how income is shared within households. As independent experts at the Institute for Fiscal Studies have said, “because most people live in households with others, and we don't know how incomes are shared, it is very hard to look at effects separately for many men and women.”</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Investment fund suspensions arise when demand for redemptions exceeds the liquidity in the fund. To service these redemptions, a fund may need to sell assets at a depressed market value, to the detriment of investors, while selling only the liquid assets could result in a fund breaching its investment mandate and possibly FCA rules. The Government recognises that fund suspensions can thereby act to protect the interests of investors in the fund.</p><p> </p><p>The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is responsible for the ongoing supervision and regulation of the UK’s financial services sector, including investment funds. The FCA’s detailed rule book ensures that firms treat their customer fairly, and its robust supervision and enforcement powers mean it can, and does, take action where a firm breaches the rules. Whether or not there has been any breach of regulatory requirements relating to UK funds and any possible investigation would be a matter for the FCA.</p><p> </p><p>In circumstances where an investment fund is domiciled outside of the UK, the supervision of its compliance with applicable rules, such as the UCITS Directive, is a matter for the home state regulator.</p><p> </p><p>If individuals have concerns about their investments, they should speak to their advisor or platform. If individuals have purchased units in a fund directly, they should speak with the relevant firm.</p>
