We have policies and procedures in place to ensure that there is no discrimination within the work place. Our procedures are reviewed annually.  We are however required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to undertake an annual review of members of staff and to publish the resulting data. The data was collected anonymously. No one was obliged to answer or respond as this was a matter of personal choice . Most staff members made the choice not to respond.
