Equality Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 10:45 am on 23 June 2009.

Alert me about debates like this


Amendments made: 65, in clause 58, page 45, line 19, leave out from ‘person’ to ‘scheme’ in line 20 and insert

‘who is a pension credit member of an occupational pension scheme as they apply in relation to a disabled person who is a deferred member or pensioner member of the’.

A non-discrimination rule does not apply in relation to pension credit members of an occupational pension scheme. This amendment and amendments 66 and 89 would ensure that disabled pension credit members are protected from discrimination in so far as communications in relation to the scheme are concerned.

Amendment 66, in clause 58, page 45, line 26, leave out subsection (2).—(The Solicitor-General.)

See explanatory statement for amendment 65.

Clause 58, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
