Finance (No. 2) Bill — Equality impact analyses of certain provisions of this Act — 21 Feb 2018 at 15:15
“All Departments carefully consider the equality impacts of individual policy decisions taken on by those sharing protected characteristics in line with our legal obligations and our clear commitment to equality issues.”
“The Treasury should use ONS and HMRC data to produce and publish robust equalities impact assessments of future Budgets, including the individual tax and welfare measures contained within them. A deficiency of data in respect of some protected characteristics is not a reason for failing to produce an analysis in respect of others for which data is available. Nor should the risk of misinterpretation or methodological complexity preclude the publication of an Equalities Impact Assessment.”
“review before the House of Commons within six months of the passing of this Act.”
“the impact of those provisions on households at different levels of income”.
“the impact of those provisions on people with protected characteristics (within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010)”.
“the impact of those provisions on the Treasury’s compliance with the public sector equality duty under section 149 of the Equality Act 2010, and…the impact of those provisions on equality in different parts of the United Kingdom and different regions of England.”
