Questions:

You appointed a diversity consultant research officer, are you still searching for a second?

Yes, still trying to find one as not having them as a bottleneck has alsway been part of the plan.

You mentioned that the diversity consultant research officer has been appointed and that a second is being looked for, but has the appointed diversity consultant research officer started doing the research?

Pretty much all work on every project got delayed due to the email attacks in May. The new research officer hadn‘t been fully inducted when the attacks happened and all tools were shut down we‘ve been extra slow and careful in restarting inductions so no, they haven’t had time to actually start doing anything much yet.
