The Equality and Human Rights Commission is responsible for complying with the public sector equality duty in the same way as other public bodies. It is not for Ministers to assess compliance with the public sector equality duty,

Ministers and officials have regular discussions with the Equality and Human Rights Commission about its overall performance.
