S5W-21785: Daniel Johnson (Edinburgh Southern)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 26 February 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide a breakdown of its employees by (a) nationality, (b) age and (c) gender.

Answered by: Derek Mackay 7 March 2019

A breakdown of employee age and gender is regularly provided in our workforce information publication which is available here .

We are unable to provide a breakdown of employee nationality as this information is not held. While nationality is collected to satisfy Civil Service nationality rules regarding eligibility for employment

it is subsequently destroyed in line with Data Protection Legislation as it is no longer required.
