Motion text

That this House notes the review of the Public Sector Equality Duty now in progress; believes the Duty, albeit only recently introduced, has considerable potential to achieve the goals of eliminating all forms of discrimination, harassment or victimisation, advancing equality of opportunity, and fostering good relations; recognises the value placed upon the Duty by public bodies, non-governmental organisations and others; and calls on Ministers to reaffirm their commitment to the Duty and to supporting public bodies in implementing it effectively.
