||<p>The Wales Office does not record how many of its staff are members of a trade union.
The Department is not an employer in its own right and most of our staff are employed
by the Ministry of Justice (MOJ).</p><p> </p><p>The MOJ held data until December 2014
on the number of staff (including Wales Office staff) who were members of a trade
union. However, following the removal of check-off as a method of payment for members
to pay for union subscriptions it is no longer possible to verify the numbers of staff
that are trade union members.</p><p><strong> </strong></p>
