Detail

This equality statement considers the impact of the proposed firefighters’ pension scheme design from April 2015. This assessment has been carried out in pursuance of the public sector equality duty.

The equality statement is a living document and, given the need to ensure that the assessment is robust, the assessment process will continue beyond the publication of this statement. The Department for Communities and Local Government will continue to consider whether the firefighters’ pension scheme design might be adjusted, or any mitigating actions necessary, to ensure that due regard has been given to the public sector equality duty, prior to the introduction of legislation on the detailed scheme design.
