Neither the Minister for Women and Equalities nor I have had such discussions.

To the extent that this matter may concern equality law, statutory guidance about compliance with equality legislation covering Great Britain is issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. It is intended to give businesses and service providers the information they need to understand the law and meet their responsibilities. The guidance can be found at: http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/publication/services-public-functions-and-associations-statutory-code-practice

Separate equality legislation applies in Northern Ireland.
