Written statement to Parliament

Equality Act 2010: harmonisation power: WMS

This speech was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

This was laid in the House of Commons on 10 May 2012 by Lynne Featherstone, and in the House of Lords by Baroness Verma

I am required under subsection (11) of section 203 of the Equality Act 2010 to report to Parliament on the exercise of a harmonisation power provided for in that section.

This reporting requirement is triggered every two years, beginning now, with the second anniversary of royal assent to the act.
I am accordingly today informing the House that no use has been made of the power in section 203.
