Review of impact of Act on equalities

Part of Finance Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 2:45 pm on 18th June 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

(1) The Chancellor of the Exchequer must conduct an equality impact assessment of the Act, and lay this before the House of Commons within six months of Royal Assent.

(2) This assessment must consider the possible impacts of this Act on individuals and groups with protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010.”

This new clause would require the Chancellor of the Exchequer to review the impact of the Bill on equalities.
