I refer the Hon Member to the evidence given by the Government Equalities Office and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) to the recent inquiry into Enforcing the Equality Act: the law and the role of the EHRC by the Women and Equalities Select Committee chaired by my Rt Hon Friend the Member for Basingstoke. The Select Committee recently published its report from the inquiry and the Government will be responding to that report shortly.

Written evidence to the inquiry by the Government can be found here http://data.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/committeeevidence.svc/evidencedocument/women-and-equalities-committee/enforcing-the-equality-act-the-law-and-the-role-of-the-equality-and-human-rights-commission/written/91826.html
