CASTE DISCRIMINATION IN THE UK
Tabled 16 May 2013
There has been an amendment to this EDM.
That this House notes the serious concerns expressed by the Hindu community at the possible consequences of the provisions in the Enterprise and Regulatary Reform Act 2013 relating to caste within the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010; and recognises the need to ensure a full and proper consultation period of at least two years with the affected communities to address the issues they have raised about practical difficulties with the legislation.
"leave out from 'notes' to end and add 'the long delay on introducing legislation to protect victims of caste discrimination within the UK; and urges the Government to launch its proposed public consultation before the summer recess, and to bring forward the necessary legislative changes before the end of the current parliamentary session.'."
