holding answer 8 July 2013

The Inter-Ministerial Group on Equalities (IMGE) last met on 7 February 2012 to consider progress on the Government's equality strategy. A report (“Building a Fairer Britain: Progress Report”) was subsequently published on 22 May 2012.

The IMGE is a mechanism for monitoring the overall effectiveness of the Government's equality strategy; however, implementation of the strategy is overseen by other relevant ministerial groups and committees. For example, the Minister for Women and Equalities is chair of a bespoke ministerial group, which includes members of the IMGE, which has been established to drive delivery of the Women's Business Council recommendations. This work will significantly contribute to the aim set out in the equality strategy of creating a fair and flexible labour market.
