           Dear Mr Khan

           FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 INFORMATION REQUEST

           I refer to your e-mail of 21 June 2010 to the Council making a request for
           information. We have now considered your request for information which has been
           dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“the Act”).

           I set out below the Council’s response to your request:

           1. The number of job applications for lawyer/solicitor level roles
              made to the Council's Legal Department within the last 3 years.

                  The Council has received 271 applications

               2. The number of job applications for lawyer/solicitor level roles
               made to the Council's Legal Department by Muslim males within the
               last 3 years.

                  We are unable to provide this information.              Currently, we do not monitor
                  applications by religion or belief.

               3. How many of the above applications by Muslim males have been
               successful.

                  See response to question 2.

               4. How many Muslim males currently work as lawyers/Solicitors for
               the Council and how many have worked as lawyers/Solicitors on a
               yearly basis over the last 3 years.

                  We are unable to provide this information. Currently, the Council does not
                  monitor applications nor it’s workforce by religion or belief.

   5. Has the Council ever looked at the above as an issue of concern
   and at what level in the Council's corporate structure was it
   considered.

     The Council has recently modified it’s process for Equality Impact Assessment
     of services and policies to assess the impact on the grounds of religion and
     belief. We are also reviewing the costs and implications of extending our
     monitoring to religion and belief in recruitment and selection processes and the
     monitoring of the existing workforce.

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been handled, you
can request an internal review of the Council’s decision by writing to: Jon Turner,
Divisional Director, Human Resources & Development.

If you remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have a right to
appeal to the Information Commissioner at:

Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House
