Equalities Act under attack


The Government has set up a website to encourage the public to tell the Government where to cut red tape.  One of the first areas to be examined is the Equality Act – and one of the suggestions inviting comment is to scrap the Act altogether to cut unnecessary bureaucracy on business and the public sector. How this would square with their obligations under European law is not articulated.
We invite members to respond to this to demonstrate support for maintaining and improving the equality legislative framework. This is another attack on equality from this coalition Government and must be challenged.
