Dear E Thomas,

 

Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI) – Request for Information:

 

I refer to your e-mail in which you requested:

‘Details of pay grades and typical roles within each pay grade.

The numbers of male and female employees at each pay grade.

The average salaries for male and female employees for each pay grade
including any bonus or other payments provided separately.

Details of and outcomes of any pay reviews that have considered salaries
according to gender and any measures introduced to remedy and
discrepancies.’

 

 

In response to your request I can provide the following:

 

No of
No of males Average Average
females in salary salary Average Average
Pay Roles within each in each each female by male by Bonus Bonus
Grades grade band band band band Female Male
1 Administration 21 7 £20,871 £21,884 £1,674 £1,661

5 Directors 1 4 Withheld £99,058 Withheld £5,405
             

 

In respect of Pay Grade 5, only one female is employed. Following careful
consideration and in view of the fact that disclosure of an average figure
would be to disclose and individual salary, Finance Wales considers such
personal information to be exempt from release under section 40(2) of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Section 40(2) provides that ‘If the
personal data is about someone other than the applicant, there is an
exemption if disclosure would breach any of the Data Protection
Principles’. In this case, the information is such that in our view, its
release would breach the Data Protection Principles. This is an absolute
exemption.

 

I can also advise that no pay reviews specifically considering gender have
been carried out by Finance Wales.

 

Your request has been considered according to the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 and principles set out in the National Assembly for Wales Code of
Practice on Public Access to Information. The Code is published [1]here.

 

If you believe that Finance Wales has not applied the Code correctly or
has not followed the relevant legislation please contact me.  If you are
still not satisfied you may make a formal complaint to Finance Wales. 
Details of Finance Wales complaint procedure are available via e-mail
