unstar this property answer text <p>The Government Legal Service (GLS) is not a department but a grouping of the legal profession within Government. Government lawyers take different forms; some are employed by the Government Legal Department (GLD), others employed by regulators and organisations at arm’s length from Government. The GLS is supported by a very small secretariat of fewer than five staff and does not systematically collect information as data is held by the lawyer’s own organisations. We are therefore unable to provide this information for the GLS. There is data for the GLD, which is the single largest ‘member’ of the GLS and the largest provider of legal services to government. As of 31 December 2016 the figures for the Government Legal Department are as follows:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Number of lawyers</p></td><td><p>1,400</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of female lawyers</p></td><td><p>896</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of lawyers from ethnic minority communities *</p></td><td><p>187</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Number of female lawyers from ethnic minority communities *</p></td><td><p>132</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>*This figure is obtained from the information that is voluntarily self-recorded by employees</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department provides strong support for the UK aerospace sector through the Aerospace Growth Partnership. We believe this has been successful in protecting the industry and supporting its growth. Since 2010, the UK aerospace industry has seen turnover grow from £23.7billion to £32billion; exports have increased from £18billion to £30billion; direct jobs have grown from 110,000 to 120,000, with indirect jobs up from 148,000 to 161,000; and, between 2010 and 2016, productivity growth in the sector was over five times more than in the economy as a whole. In addition we have created a more certain environment to drive increased investment in R&amp;D, through a £1.95billion Government commitment over 13 years to 2026, matched by industry, to fund new R&amp;D projects.</p><p>But we are not complacent and will continue to work with industry through the AGP to retain the UK's position as a leading aerospace nation.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister has a goal of increasing by 20% the number of BME students in higher education. In our new guidance to the Director of Fair Access, which we published on 11 February, we ask him to maximise the contribution of Access Agreements towards this ambition. The share of BME enrolments at UK institutions has already risen from just over 20% to 23% between 2009/10 and 2014/15. Entry rates for 18 year olds in each ethnic group increased in 2015, reaching the highest recorded values for each group. Between 2009 and 2015, the entry rate for young people in the Black ethnic group increased by over 40 percent proportionally.</p><p> </p><p>Investment by the higher education sector through Access Agreements is expected to reach £746 million in 2016/17 up from £404 million in 2009/10.</p><p> </p><p>The Government accepts that selective institutions already do much to widen participation. We also acknowledge the work that they already do. Nonetheless, we are convinced that more could and should be done. In our recent guidance to the Director of Fair Access, <a href="http://www.offa.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/11-02-2016-OFFA-Guidance.pdf" target="_blank">www.offa.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/11-02-2016-OFFA-Guidance.pdf</a> we asked him to secure more progress. Institutions must use evidence and good practice to lever better results and there needs to be more innovation in this area. As the Director of Fair has also said, ‘it should not be beyond institutions themselves to find ways of making more progress.’</p>
