Dear Lauren,

Thank you for the information. Could you clarify your response to Q4 ii) on the number of women on minimum wage? You say you don't have the information for outside contractors, but do not say how many of the 24 employees previously mentioned are women. Please could you supply this information.

Yours sincerely,

Rustam Majainah

Dear Rustam,

For Question 4 ii), I can confirm that 10 employees are women.
As stated in the request, we do not hold this information for outside contractors.

Kind regards,

Lauren
