Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011 — Motion to Approve — 6 Sep 2011 at 17:19
Amendment to the Motion
Moved by Lord Low of Dalston
As an amendment to the Motion in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, to insert at the end "but that this House regrets that the Government have seriously weakened the Regulations, making it more difficult to hold public bodies to account; and calls on the Government to withdraw the Regulations and re-lay the earlier version published in January which required public bodies to publish information on equality analyses they have undertaken, to set objectives designed to facilitate compliance with the General Equality Duty and publish information about the engagement they have had with affected groups when developing these objectives, and to report annually on progress towards meeting these objectives, all of which is critical to ensuring that the General Equality Duty produces tangible and positive outcomes."
