This question was answered on 8th May 2018

The Civil Service chose to adopt the Ban the Box initiative in February 2016. The Cabinet Office does not hold information on the number of public sector organisations that have adopted the Ban the Box policy.

I also refer the honourable member to the response given by Dr Phillip Lee on behalf of the Ministry of Justice on the 13th November 2017 (Ref: 111417).
