The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has and will continue, through the current spending review period, to receive sufficient funds to enable it to fulfil its statutory functions, against the agreed minimum level of just over £17m a year noted by the final evidence report of the EHRC’s Comprehensive Budget Review in 2013, a copy of which is attached.

As part of the Cabinet Office’s ongoing review of all Public Bodies, this Government expects to commence a tailored review of the EHRC in 2017-18. This will provide a further opportunity to consider the EHRC’s capability to discharge its duties and responsibilities.
